Year 8 Fun Run / Sponge the Teacher Day
After what has been a gloomy few months, it was refreshing to see Year 8 students actively raising money for two very worthwhile causes: The House of Mercy and the Meningitis Research Foundation. The pupils were tasked with gaining sponsorship to participate in a charity fun run, although what they were most excited about was the opportunity to sponge their teachers!
All of their hard work culminated in a final day of fun, and even the wet weather couldn’t dampen the spirits of the staff and students involved. The pupils showed excellent commitment during the charity run and even greater enthusiasm when it came to soaking their teachers with sponges and buckets of cold water! The wonderful effort displayed by our pupils was a true reflection of the Catholic Ethos of St John’s and our school’s unswerving desire to serve and support the wider community. We are absolutely delighted to announce that, with the fantastic help of families and loved ones, the students managed to raise an incredible £2191, which really did surpass all expectations. A huge ‘thank you’ to everyone who supported this wonderful event.
