S1-S6 Dance Festival 2014

S1-S6 Dance Festival

The S1-S6 Dance Festival organised by Active Schools was held in St John's on Thursday 6th March 2014. Our dancers were runners up in the Street Modern Category, well done girls.

 

National "No Smoking Day"

Next Wednesday 12 March is National ‘No Smoking Day’
An event will take place over the lunchtime period in our school assembly hall. It is hoped that this will raise awareness of the negative effects of smoking to health in general and during this time smoking cessation resources will be available. Several outside agencies including Key To Change, Fairbridge and Young Carers, as well as NHS staff will be contributing to this event by promoting positive mental and physical health and wellbeing and young people will have the opportunity to take part in sports activities. Quizzes and word searches will be available with a number of small prizes to be won and fresh fruit tasters will be on offer for all pupils. ‘Lush’will be coming along to this event and the ‘Youth Bus’ will be on site with workers from Dundee City Council’s youth team.
All pupils and staff will be most welcome to attend.

Little Sisters of the Poor - 150 years in the service of the elderly in Dundee

Thank you to everyone involved in the recent non uniform day and cake sale to raise money for the Little Sisters of the Poor. We were able to hand over a cheque to the sisters for £1000, due to the kindness and generosity of all pupils, parents/carers and staff.
 
We have received a lovely letter of thanks from the Sisters who were delighted with our contribution and also our attendance at their celebrations. A special mention was given to Nicole Vasey for her solo performance. In total, Catholic schools in Dundee donated £2200 to the Sisters for the 150th celebrations.
 
Many thanks again.

Tesco - Thank you!

St John's RC High School and our associated feeder primary schools would like to offer a very big thank you to Tesco Extra, Riverside Drive, Dundee for their very kind donations of discontinued items of school clothing and footwear.

These generous donations have enabled us to offer  extra help to some of the families in our community who are really struggling to provide these items for their children in these difficult financial times.

Recently released figures indicate that 1 in 5 children in Scotland are living in poverty, so this extra help from the management and staff of Tesco Extra Riverside and in particular, their Community Champion - Mrs Kathryn Torode is greatly appreciated.
