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.

Welcome to Term 3!

Welcome back to a new term! I hope that you were all able to enjoy some special time with your children over the holidays. It has been wonderful catching up with children after their holiday break and despite the very wet conditions, they all appear to be very excited and happy to be back at school, ready for another ten weeks of learning and fun!

COVID 19l

There have been positive signs of a return to a more ‘normal’ school term, however, I think that we are far from free of the ‘pandemic climate’ we continue to experience. We are certainly very fortunate in Western Australia, but there is no escaping the challenges that New South Wales and parts of Victoria, as well as across the globe, continue to face. Let us keep our neighbours, our relatives and friends interstate and overseas, in our thoughts and prayers during this time.

This Term will be Wonderful!

Term Three is a busy term – a time for our students to showcase their wonderful talents in various Learning Areas. We are very much looking forward to the Sports Day, Father’s Day Breakfast and Liturgy, National Science Week, Sacrament of First Holy Communion, Book Week and St John’s Week just to name a few! It is definitely a busy term but one we are very excited about.
