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.

Athletics Carnival

Our Athletics Carnival on Friday was a fantastic day of sportsmanship and athleticism. The children were keen to push themselves for a personal best and in support of their Guild. We were blessed with beautiful Spring sunshine, amazing support from our parents in numerous ways and a smoothly run carnival thanks to Mr Sanders and the staff.

Edu Dance Concert

Further to that sun and fun filled day we enjoyed the delightful rhythmic beat of our children’s feet during Mondays’ Edu Dance Concert. For those of you unable to attend the concerts but keen to view the performances Mr Alonzo is uploading the videos onto the school website soon and will then alert you via a SEQTA message.
