“Very enjoyable and interesting seeing the kids interacting with each other and explaining how they help each other and compete with each other in learning their subjects. I would change nothing! Enjoyable and the kids loved telling the parents about what they do in class.”
“We enjoyed the Discovery Day. It was very well organised and presented. The topics were very interesting and the class presented them very well. We would not change anything, well done!”
“The children were very enthusiastic about their topic. It was great for the kids to show us all the different aspects of the topic as it’s clear what they enjoyed most. I feel Discovery day was fantastic, so I don’t feel it could be made better. Thank you!”
“The kids all worked hard to learn a lot and put a lot of hard work into it. They all put in a lot of work and I think they have worked very hard. I wouldn’t change anything!”
“It was great to see all the hard work on show and see their enthusiasm for all the subjects – it was great to see! All good – keep up the great work!”

“It was a great opportunity to meet Mr Graham who I feel will be a great addition to St John’s and I feel he is going to be a great P7 teacher.”
“It was good to meet the teacher and see all their planned activities and what to expect. Today was very well presented in a family friendly manner.”
“Good to meet a new teacher to the school. It was difficult to arrange childcare and would help if something could be available in the gym hall etc.”
This evening our primary 7 pupils received the sacrament of Confirmation along with pupils from St Mark’s, St Thomas’ and St Margaret’s Primary Schools.
Well done to all pupils involved and thank-you to Mr Clark for preparing them so well.
A MASSIVE well done to all of the pupils in primary 6 and 7 who helped to create an amazing collection of outfits from trash! The whole school had lots of fun watching the fashion show yesyerday and it was a great way to end our fun packed Eco and Science week.
An extra special well done to model Olivia McLean and her team who took the 2015 ‘Trash to Fashion’ title!
Thanks also to Mr MacConnell for helping to organise the event and for his input with primary 6, to Miss Webster for her excellent DJ-ing skills and to Mrs Aitken for once again providing us with the most up to date tunes around!
Pupils in primary 6 and 7 will take part in First Friday Mass at St. John’s Parish Church on Friday 4th October at 10.00am. Please come along and join us.
