On the last Friday of every month the Arc, supported by the music department, are holding an acoustic guitar session for students to come and play/sing for other students who are having their lunch there. The first two sessions have gone very well and have been enjoyed by performers and audience alike.

Dear Parent/Carer,
St John’s is delighted to offer for sale this year’s winning designs from the House Christmas Card Competition. These cards come for sale in packs of 5 (1 design per pack), at a cost of £3 per pack. The house that sells the most cards will win the competition for their house, however all the money raised will go back into funding the school’s house enrichment activities. I hope you will support our students and their houses for this fantastic cause.

Year 9 Art students are taking part again in this year's Advent Windows in Bishop Auckland. Their window depicts a Christmas Story from Peru, Tell Me Bright Stars, and will be unveiled by Peruvian Glover Romero on Friday 7 December at 11.00am at the Town Hall. Do come along and support our young artists as well as our small group of musicians who will be playing!

Some year 9 students have been on a recent heritage project visit and are working with their class teachers to translate tourist information into French and Spanish for any foreign visitors to the local area. Examples of the leaflets will be ready very soon.    

Year 7 and 8 students were able to use their French skills recently to talk to a native French speaking visitor who came to do some work with them in school. They were able to ask and answer questions in French and worked very well.
