Dynamic Youth Award

Today, our dynamic youth group held their long awaited digi-event for the residents of St Mary’s.

The group carefully planned the whole afternoon and the residents had a blast! The children loaded the VR Headsets with places the residents enjoyed visiting as children or always dreamed of visiting. They toured Germany, Paris, Canada and even had time for a 360 hot air balloon ride and 360 shark experience. The headsets proved a great hit! The children also discussed how school had changed over time and gave the residents time to explore the promethean board before a quick tour of some classrooms.

Everyone agreed- schools certainly have changed!


Celebrating 100 years of Catholic Education

Celebrating 100 years of Catholic Education

One of the highlights of the Centenary celebrations for Catholic schools is a National Mass on the 14th June, at 1pm in Falkirk Stadium where every Catholic School in Scotland will be represented at this unique occasion.

In total, St John’s has randomly selected 16 pupils to attend the Mass.  Four staff/adults will accompany the children on the day. The children will leave St John’s around 9:15am and depart Falkirk by 3pm. We estimate their arrival back at St John’s to be around 4pm.

Children should wear full school uniform on the day and bring a packed lunch.
