Better Place – Better Health Project 2017

Eighteen of our S2 pupils worked with Students from The University of Dundee from November 2016 to February 2017 on the Better Places – Better Health Project. This project allowed the young people to investigate and deliver their ideas on the current issue -  how do we attract and include everyone to experience the aspects of the city that are emerging, and consider a holistic approach to environmental health and wellbeing?

Our Young people created two models and presented their ideas to Allan Watt, Director of the Waterfront Project and his team.  Our young people received positive feedback from Allan and he plans to speak with them again as some of the ideas presented by the young people are similar to the Waterfront Project’s plans for the city.

St. John’s is delighted that two of our pupils were awarded prizes at the Burgess Short Story Prize Giving Ceremony in the City Chambers last night.  The competition, held annually by the City Burgess Charity, invites S3 pupils across Dundee to write and submit original short stories.  This year’s theme was Superheroes – Real or Imagined.  The judges commended the high standard of entries.  The assembled guests and dignitaries listened to Jessica Mannion read her wonderful story about women’s rights and the Suffrage Movement which was awarded Second Prize overall.  Lena Macaulay was awarded one of three prizes nominated for “Worthy Mention”.  Well done to both girls, maintaining the tradition of St. John’s success in this competition – we were the first winners four years ago.
