On Friday we said goodbye to our outgoing senior pupils. After a fantastic week of celebrations including a New York themed leaver’s disco, Mass celebrated by Father Jock and an end of term Achievement Assembly, the time finally came for the pupils to leave St John’s for the last time.
As a sign of community, the P3-6 pupils gathered on the stairs to watch the P7’s leave the building and a piper waited to greet them as they exited the school for the final time. Parents and guardians clapped as the children stepped out into the playground and later on some of the children gathered for a party on the beach to celebrate this milestone in their lives.
Maisie, one of our P7’s who played for the school football team, presented our Janitor and her coach Mr Mackie with a lovely card before she left. The picture on the front bore an uncanny likeness to Mr Mackie who was clearly delighted with the card, strangely we always thought he was a big Hibee, who would have thought he was a Hearts fan deep down.
We wish each and every one of our Primary 7’s a happy and healthy future, we ask God to bless them as they move onto High School and we are sure they will do themselves and St John’s proud. Step boldly into the future P7!
