Term finally drew to a close today with our Leaver’s Assembly. It was great occasion with plenty to celebrate. After sharing the Gospel, Ms Hanou recognised all of those children who have achieved 100% attendance this year. There was an opportunity to celebrate the recent District Sport Success at Ridlins. Well done to all of you who took part and well done to Mr Baker for all the hard that made this success possible.
The winning saints were celebrated for this term: St Bernadette but the overall winner for the year was: St Lucy.
Mr Baker introduced an new award this year; The PE Award for Inspiration and Excellence for the pupil who personified the achievement possible with hard work and commitment.
The very worthy winner was Thomas Rathband
There were other awards of recognition.
The Mrs Pike Courtesy Cup was awarded to Molly Toms for unfailingly polite and considerate behavior during her time as St John’s.
The Blanchfield Music Prize was awarded to Callum Smith for his musical endeavours and achievements.
It was also a chance to say goodbye to those staff who are leaving at the end of this term.
But the day belonged to Year 6. They were delighted to receive their year books produced through the efforts and commitment of Mrs Hislop who was duly thanked by the PA.
All credit to Mrs Bailes for creating an outstanding Year 6 film which celebrated all they are and all they could be.
Their time at St John’s ended with the Leaver’s Arch and we wish them every success in the future.
