Sports Comprehensive Gives Blood
Thursday 8th January 2015 saw the first blood donation session to be hosted within St John’s RC Academy. This allowed senior pupils and staff from both St John’s and our Sports Comprehensive partner, Perth Grammar, to give blood to the NHS.
Gwen Fenton, donor operations and resourcing manager for NHS Tayside, said, “It was an absolute pleasure working with you and the feedback from our staff was exactly the same. The staff also commented how wonderful all the pupils were and how fantastic the session ran”.
Mr Hagney, Acting Headteacher of St John’s RC Academy added, “We are delighted that NHS Tayside were able to come to our joint Sports Comprehensive so that we could give blood – with many donors giving for the first time. The resp0nse in both schools from pupils and staff has been excellent, and we would want to make this an annual event in our calendar.”
Congratulations to all involved. Same time next year!
