Welcome to St John’s
St John’s School, Scarborough is a Catholic, co-educational, single stream primary school for students from Pre Kindergarten to Year 6.
Our school’s tradition of educational excellence spans over 70 years and continues to be supported by our dynamic teachers and diverse curriculum opportunities. Our education expands well beyond the walls of our classrooms and our programs develop in each of our students the aptitudes for lifelong learning.
Our teachers endeavour to develop the whole child by encouraging children to discover their own talents and strengths, shaping and positioning students to learn and thrive in our ever-changing and developing world by activating engaging and rewarding learning and encouraging students to contribute to their communities.
Our vibrant and varied academic, social and pastoral programs are underpinned by our strong school values – Truth, Achievement, Respect.
Our students and families are welcomed into our warm, caring and connected community. We are proud to be widely recognised for our welcoming and inclusive community and have an excellent reputation in the area for pastoral care and quality Early Childhood education. Walk inside our school gates and you will feel this community spirit.
Come and visit us to experience the life of a St John’s student.
A tour is an opportunity to observe classrooms in action, to see our facilities and to talk with our Principal, Mrs Velma Erskine, about the St John’s programs and offerings. We’ll get in touch with you and confirm your tour.
Working in Partnership – School and Home
Schools work best when staff and parents are like minded in what they want for their students and students see home and school working together for their benefit. For this to occur respect and trust are a prerequisite. As a school, we trust that parents and carers are doing their best for their children. Likewise, parents and carers need to trust that we as a school, always have the best intentions for the development and learning of all children.
COVID-19 Community Information
With much of the media and public commentary about COVID-19 continuing to ramp up and often being quite alarming, it is quite understandable that staff, parents and students may feel stressed and anxious about the situation. We need to remember that both the World Health Organization and the Department of Health continue to advise that the current risk of transmission in Western Australia remains low.
Expression of Interest for OHSC
As communicated previously to the community, St John’s Primary School is looking into establishing an Out of School Hours Care (OSHC), before and after school care centre on our school site. An ‘expression of interest’ survey was recently sent out to all families to complete so that we could gather the level of community interest in establishing the centre.
