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.

Happy Birthday to Our Lady, Mary, the Mother of Jesus

On Wednesday 8 September it was the birthday of Mary, the Mother of Jesus. We do not usually celebrate the birthdays of saints, instead we celebrate the day they died and because that is the day they are born into the joys of heaven.
