On the 19th of December, a selection of students represented the Music Department and visited The Butterwick Hospice in Bishop Auckland.  Singers and instrumentalists played a variety of Christmas repertoire to entertain a small group of residents during their Christmas party.

Spain is not the only place where elections have been taking place recently!  Election fever hit St John’s last month when the whole Student Body and Staff voted for the School’s first head girl and boy in more than 30 years.   Our Student Council has been expanded this term to include Student representatives from each subject taught in school as well as senior prefects.

Year 11 students and their families are warmly invited to our open evening on 17 November 2011. The Director of Sixth Form will deliver his welcome speech at 6:30pm.

Another year's committed fundraising culminated in Project Peru 2010 in which a group of 25 Sixth Form students and 5 staff joined Joe Plumb to work in some of the most deprived areas of Lima's shanty towns.

In June 2009 a group of 30 Sixth Form students and staff from St John's Catholic School & Sixth Form Centre went out to work for two weeks in one of the shanty towns of Lima, capital of Peru.

The money raised for Project Peru 2009 was used to completely rebuild and equip a food kitchen which serves over 100 adults and children living in extreme poverty in an area called Raucana.
