P6 Home Learning

We will be organising our home learning differently this year in Primary 6. Your child has been sent home with all the information that you might need, however we have uploaded the documents here in case you would like to refer to them.

We appreciate your ongoing support.

National Gathering for Parents in Catholic Schools

On Saturday 21st September there is a national event for parents with children in Catholic schools which aims to support you as the first educators of your children.  The day will include activities for children, so that child care is not an obstacle to attending.  We hope that the programme will be of interest to all families and will help strengthen the link between Catholic homes, the parish and their schools.

Details of the event are listed below:

St John’s Pupils visit St Therese Relics

8 of our senior pupils visited St Mary’s Cathedral as part of an archdiocesan celebration of Mass on Monday 9th September. The boys and girls prayed at the altar with the relics of St Therese of Liseux after Mass before returning to school.

St John’s was one of 28 schools represented at the Mass which was celebrated by His Grace Archbishop Leo Cushley. The Mass marked the arrival of the relics in our Archdiocese and during the homily Archbishop Leo Cushley explained why St Therese has such a devoted following here in Scotland.

The children who attended mass were very respectful and reverent and represented our school very well.

Junior Masterchef 2019

Primary 7 have enjoyed making a variety of savoury and sweet dishes over the last couple of weeks! We made pizzas with the help of Nonno Pacitti’s tomatoes all the way from Italy. They turned out fantastico! This week we had a bash at making cupcakes. It was a mixed success. Let’s just say Primary 7 are better at cracking jokes than eggs. They are a super creative year group and love the challenge that cooking brings. We look forward to honing our skills this year.
