We have a number of opportunities for our learners to get involved and have their voices heard.
One elected representative per class from Nursery-7 will meet regularly to discuss ways that we can improve St John’s and the learning that happens here.
This is a team of P3-7s who have been chosen to represent their class. They are working together towards our next Eco Schools Green Flag award, and are trying to make the school and the local area more sustainable.
A group of children from across the school are working to make the roads around the school safer, and encourage people to walk or use a sustainable form of transport to get to school.
Mrs Kelly is working with this group to ensure that everyone, no matter who they are, has equal opportunities at St John’s, and they support us all in celebrating the diversity around the school.
Dignity in School
We are proud to be working with Miss Sharp from the Children’s Parliament and Stoneywood PS in Aberdeen over the next session on the Dignity in School project.
We are very lucky to be working with Tana, who comes in regularly to work with our younger pupils on the school groups. We have been growing a variety of flowers, fruits and vegetables, and learning about how plants grow.
We are working towards our Laudato Si award, which is based on the Pope’s 2015 letter calling for ecological action. It links our faith to our commitment to the environment.
