St John’s buzzing about ECO morning

On a cloudy but dry Friday morning, St John’s pupils brought colour to our ECO morning as they dressed in every colour of the rainbow to celebrate our annual ECO gathering.

Nursery dressed as bumblee bees to start off our celebrations and this year’s theme was of course ‘Save the Bees!’. Each class paraded their handiwork with some amazing efforts from the pupils and ECO reps shared fascinating facts and bee jokes with the audience.  The St John’s school choir treated us to a fantastic musical interlude whilst we ate our ice creams.

It was a great morning celebrating our ECO work and spreading the message ‘Save the Bees!’, well done everyone!

Scottish Cross Country Event

At the very end of the Easter holidays, three of our Pupils:  Finlay and Liam from P6 and Robyn from P7 took part in the Scottish Country event in Kirkcaldy representing the school as a result of how well they performed in the Edinburgh events, earlier in the term.

All 3 pupils competed well, in a highly competitive field and we are extremely proud of their efforts.

Great achievement Katie!
