Each year at St John’s RC Academy, our P2 classes are the stars (and the shepherds and the kings!) of our Nativity. Primary 2 are joined by children from across the primary school who sing Christmas songs as part of the whole show.Read more

I just wanted to write a short message to you as we enter the last week of term. The newsletter for Term 2 will be out soon and I have also included a message there. Nevertheless I just wanted to take a moment to thank you all for your ongoing support for your school. Most recently this was shown in the remarkable participation of parents and families at our primary nativity and Christmas Show and the P7 Fair. The children of P2 who led our nativity, and the children from across the school, were absolutely brilliant, and this was aided in no small part by the full and appreciative audiences which you provided.Read more
The end of the first term is nearly here – already!
It has been great to see so many of our families in the school at various events over the course of the term. Many of you have taken the opportunity to come along to our drop-ins, soft starts and stay-and-plays to get to know us, and for us to get to know you too. It was wonderful to see so many of you come along to our family mass, led by Bishop Stephen. The theme this year was ‘Welcoming’, and this is what we want to be as a community.Read more
The summer term is here! Health Week is currently underway in our nursery and primary, with the secondary Health Week to come later in May. Our Bike Breakfast this morning was a great success (and thanks to Mr Antoniewicz for the brilliant picture). The exam season is ongoing, and as I write, many of our young people are sitting National 5 Mathematics. I wish all our candidates, across the whole range of courses, every success.Read more
On Wednesday 27th March, Primary 7 performed ‘Rock Bottom’. A show about an ordinary stone-age boy called Bobby who just wants to work for the prime time stone-age celebrity, Lord Lava, but his plans don’t always work out. Secrets to success were revealed, friendships were formed in this ‘funny bone’ tickling musical extravaganza.Read more
We are now well into 2019 as I write to you, and coming up to our short break. Since the new year our learners have been hard at work across our nursery and school. Our senior pupils have been undertaking assessment opportunities before their formal exams in April/May, and many of our S2 pupils have enjoyed a fabulous week in the Italian Alps learning to ski. A four minute video is available here to view. Secondary pupils also recently enjoyed the delights of Murrayfield for a Six Nations Rugby match. P6 have been participating (in all weathers!) in our outdoor education programme at Battleby, and P7 are busy preparing for the school show (on 27 March – mark it in the calendar!). Our Monday ‘Learning Hub’ in the library is going well, and new Families Connect sessions have begun. Read more
