Originating in Canada, YPI is now an international programme and is delivered in secondary schools across Scotland. The programme is principally funded and managed in Scotland by The Wood Foundation and St John’s RC Academy has been delivering the programme to S3 pupils for a number of years.
The Youth and Philanthropy Initiative (YPI) is an active citizenship programme that raises awareness amongst young people about philanthropy and their local community. Each participating school, each year is responsible for directing a £3000 YPI Grant to a local charity through a unique programme of team work, research and competition. YPI Scotland is all about creativity and passion, leaving the four walls of the classroom behind, and supporting the issues young people care most about. This session, as in past sessions, our S3 pupils have met with a number of volunteers, staff members and charity representatives to research and gather information about their chosen charities. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the charity personnel that worked with our pupils for the time and commitment they have shown to them and our school community. Read more
Once again, the school organised a very successful skiing trip to Pila in Italy.
35 pupils from S2 took part in the trip, and a fantastic time was enjoyed by all.
Many thanks to the staff (Mr Barker, Mrs Sandilands, Miss Lynch, Mr Simpson and Mr McManamon) who helped to organise and manage all aspects of the trip. Read more
