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.

Station of the Cross

It is important as a Catholic School, to reflect and recreate the events of Holy Week. At yesterday’s Stations of the Cross re-enactment, the Year 6 students reminded us all how important the events of Holy Week are and how we should prepare for Easter Sunday. All students are to be congratulated for their reverent participation in the re-enactment.

Easter Egg Raffle

A big ‘thank you’ to all members of the St John’s community for supporting the P&F Easter Raffle. Thank you to the ladies who wrapped all the baskets and arranged the prizes and for making this such a special occasion for the children. May I take this opportunity to thank all families who donated Easter eggs and those who have been selling tickets over the past couple of weeks. Without your assistance this event would not be possible.
