We’re improving our website to make it more accessible. There’s now a new Nursery Section, a Campus Section and the Headteacher’s Blog. Here you’ll find regular information about recent events as well as events which are coming up. Mr Hagney will also be reflecting on the work of the school and celebrating some of the successes of our learners.
Rosa Alexander and Justyna Mlynarczyk (S6) reflect on the week they spent volunteering with others from S6 in the Budimex Marie Curie Children’s Hospital and the Recuperare Centre.
During our October break, 8 of us from S6 (together with 2 members of staff) undertook a life changing trip to Romania to volunteer at the Marie Curie Children’s Hospital. After several months working hard to raise funds for the hospital we went over to see how the money would be spent, spend time with the children and visit our link school. Read more
Rosa Alexander (S6) looks back on her recent visit to St Joseph’s College, Bucharest, our partner school.
In October 2015, a group of 8 of us from S6 went over to volunteer in the Budimex Marie Curie Children’s Hospital in Bucharest. While we were there, we also met with many pupils at St Joseph’s, our partner school in Romania. We brought over both primary and secondary scrapbooks created by our pupils which were full of information about our community and we passed them on so they could learn more about our school. The pupils and staff gave us a tour of the school and we met with groups of primary and secondary pupils and played some ice breaker games together. They then asked us what life was like in Scotland and seemed very amused at our stories of bad weather! Read more
To help raise school funds, we now are selling 2016 Perthshire Calendars. The Rotary Club of Perth Kinnoull will donate £8 to school funds for every £10 calendar sold. That’s a whopping 80% profit for our school with the remaining £2 going towards the production of the calendar.
We are pleased to announce that Mr Seán Hagney, who has been Acting Headteacher and Campus Leader since July 2014, has been appointed to the permanent position of Headteacher of St John’s RC Academy and Campus Leader of North Inch Community Campus with immediate effect.
In her letter to parents, Quality Improvement Officer, Kathleen Robertson, said, “I am sure you will wish to join me in congratulating Mr Hagney and you can be confident the school will continue to grow and develop under his leadership.” Read more
