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 back to St John’s as we begin a new school year. To parents of our Pre Kindy and Kindy students and families new to the St John’s community, I offer you a special welcome and I look forward to meeting you over the coming weeks. I hope that all of our families had a relaxing break over the summer holidays and that you are ready to begin a new school year.
Thank you to all families in supporting our Bushfire Appeal today, we had many excited children in free dress with an understanding that their contribution will make a difference to a family in need. Donations will be collected by classrooms teachers and all money donated will go towards the Archbishops Bushfire Appeal.
Parent Information Evenings
It was wonderful to have the opportunity to meet many of the parents and carers at our Parent Information Evenings over the past few nights. As mentioned on the nights, building strong positive relationships between home and school builds a foundation for success for the child.
