Bike to School Week

St John’s are encouraging children to support Bike to school week (Monday 28th September – Friday 2nd October) by riding or scooting to school.

We would ask that children use the bike rack at the nursery entrance to the playground or the bike rack next to the staff car park to store their bikes/scooters. Last week a bike and scooter were taken from the small bike rack at the side entrance to Treverlen Park.

P6 pupils who enter the school from the park side entrance should dismount at the playground gate and wheel their bikes/scooters up to the nursery bike sheds.

Thank you

Junior NBA Update

‘Team St John’s were wonderful on Friday’, writes Kerry Costello. ‘I couldn’t have asked more of them. They all improved with each time they were on the court! We lost the first game 20-14 and we won the second game…against ‘giants’!! We are a primary six lot playing against primary sevens. Very proud of our wee team for the attitude, conduct and playing. Well done Team St John’s.’
