Well Done to Dauntay Lewys, who won this year’s Simon Kirane Award – the award was accepted on behalf of Dauntay by his brother Remone.
Yesterday, the Year 6 celebrated their time as part of St.John’s at 12 o’clock Mass. The children, parents and Father McMahon looked back over their time at the school and in the parish. We know all the children will go on to do special things in and out of the school and church community.
A huge thank you to the Fiona Foundation, who donated a lavender plant to each child to help remember their time, friends and experiences at St.John’s.
Last week, Nursery held their Graduation Ceremony, the children shared their favourite memories and experiences as well as singing their hearts out! It was a fantastic event and the children got to show how much they have learnt and grown in their time in the Nursery, well done!
Last Week, Y1NG were luckily enough to have a visit from Professor Yvonne Alexander. The Professor, an expert in heart disease, talked to the children about the different parts of the circulatory system, the importance of keeping their hearts strong and what could happen if they don’t!
The children really enjoyed learning from a Professor, a huge thank you to Professor Alexander and well done to Year 1, for some great learning!
After months of hard work, the Year 6 Summer Show came to it’s grand finale on Wednesday night. The children showcased their talents for acting, singing and dancing on stage, putting on exceptional performances each night.
