We have a new friend on our playground wall to deliver all our news! Why not have look to see what’s going on whilst you’re waiting to collect your little Owlets!
This has been issued today – please check your (eldest) child’s bag for all St John’s recent news!
On Wednesday 29th March we will have our fourth and final count of our SCIAF ‘wee boxes’. To celebrate, pupils can come to school dressed up in the traditional dress of a country of their choice (£1 donation per child).

If your child is interested in attending this event, consent forms can be collected at the school office.
Huge thanks to Mrs Higgins and the parent council for our new religious resources. Fr Paul visited us to give a special blessing of our gifts. Each class has now received a beautifully framed picture of St John, new candles and holy water fonts. Fr Paul also blessed P4’s first communion rosary beads and P7’s crucifixes.
As part of our Easter Celebrations, our classes will be decorating a boiled egg as a homework activity. Pupils have been encouraged to be creative and showcase their artistic skills!
Each design should be brought in no later than Thursday 30th March.
