Welcome to our new Primary 1 children!

This morning, some of our new Primary 1s came along with their parents and carers to meet their new teachers and to get used to the learning spaces.

After a wee story and a chat with their new teachers, Primary 6 did an excellent job as our new buddies, taking the children along to their classrooms and helping them to explore the different areas. Here are a few photographs of the morning. Well done to all our new Primary 1s!

Games at the Hub

Yesterday P6 pupils represented St John’s at the annual Games @ the Hub event. The children were placed into 3 different activites, hockey, volleyball and dance. The hockey team did very well to reach the final and finished second overall. All the children were very involved in their activities and supported over 75 other schools. The day culminated in a mass dance off with 600 pupils taking part.

There were a few sleepy heads on the bus home after such a busy and active day! Well done P6!
