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 Mary Bizzaca, about the St John’s programs and offerings. We’ll get in touch with you and confirm your tour.
What a very special and beautiful Christmas Concert experience on Thursday evening! Our amazing children and simply fabulous Music Teacher, Mrs Rochelle Albert, presented us with a highly entertaining version of the Nativity story. Mr Alonzo has uploaded the video in portions so that you can watch your children in their particular scene. A very big thank you to all involved: Rochelle, of course, for her production prowess, Father Gorddard for his technical expertise, teachers for the seamless ‘backstage’ organisation of classes and parents for finding all those cute costume parts and being such a great audience! What a lovely way to gather together as a community at the end of a school year.
The children’s School Reports went online yesterday for the Pre Primary to Year 6 students. Do touch base with your child’s teacher should you have any queries about the report content.
Year 6 Students
This week we bid farewell to our very industrious Year 6 students. We wish them well in their secondary school studies. We say adieu to those families leaving St John’s this year. Our best wishes to all of you. Thank you to everyone for a wonderful year.
