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.


Visit Us!

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 Mary Bizzaca, about the St John’s programs and offerings. We’ll get in touch with you and confirm your tour.

Remembrance Day

Yesterday we held our Prayer Assembly later than usual to incorporate recognition of Remembrance Day. Led by our Year 3 and 6 classes and nestled amongst the overhanging shade trees students in Years 1-6 solemnly and respectfully participated in the 11am gathering, listening to the Last Post, laying paper poppy wreaths (that had been made in class), observing the lowering of the flag and beautifully maintaining a minutes silence. It was a very poignant service. Special kudos to Mr Scattini for his coordination of the ceremony.

This Friday our annual Lapathon, coordinated by the P&F, will be held on the school oval as per normal for Years 1-6. This is always such a great community day. The P&F are supplying a sausage sizzle lunch for everyone but we do suggest you send along some additional snack food for lunchtime for your children.
