Back to school in the morning!

Dear Parents and Carers,


School is open tomorrow at 8.40am as normal. We're really looking forward to welcoming the children back.


I was just beginning to feel that Sunday afternoon "back to school" feeling, when I received an email from one of our parents, telling me about an amazing thing that her daughter has done this holiday. It cheered me up so much that I thought I would share with all of you. Aisha, a super star in Year 2, decided to try and raise even more money for the Turkey/ Syria earthquake appeal. She did a 3km sponsored walk, and managed to raise another £404.28!!!! Amazing! She wants to add this to the money that St John's raised on our non-uniform day; which takes our total money raised to a massive £1,726. WOW. I'm always so proud of the children at St John's School, and their concern for other people, and this is another example of this in action.


Here is a link to a video that Aisha's mum shared with me: 


Well done to Aisha and her family, and thanks for sharing this with me.

I hope that's helped to beat any back-to-school-blues! We're so lucky to be part of such a great school community.


See you tomorrow!

Best wishes,

Mrs Seymour
