October 2013

The concert by Rob Heron and the Tea Pad Orchestra is taking place on

       Wednesday 6th November, 7pm in the Fred Wilson Community Hall.

The band is a hot six-piece featuring guitars, mandolin, harmonica, accordion, double bass, percussion and occasional trumpet. They’re more eclectic than most mixing Western, Swing, Gypsy Jazz, Hokum Blues, Ragtime and roots of Country.

Come along and we can guarantee you will enjoy a fantastic evening!

Many thanks for the generosity of both staff and students for the CAFOD fast envelopes and recent Macmillan Coffee Morning, hosted by Year 10.

The school raised £178.41 last week for CAFOD and £85.00 for Macmillan Cancer.

Tuesday 15th October saw The Catholic Partnership host their first ever Design Technology Show at the National Glass Centre, Sunderland.

Last week we welcomed The Pearl of Africa Children’s Choir, an exciting touring choir of 18 energetic young people aged 10 to 18 from Uganda who are here to raise awareness and much needed funds to sustain and improve the standard of education, healthcare and living conditions in their schools.

The MADD group presents...
'A Music, Drama and Dance Showcase'
Monday 21st October @ 6:30pm

Tickets are £2.50 and refreshments will be provided.

St John’s reports and progress evenings are changing this year.  For several years, progress evenings have been focussed on an individual conversation with the tutor and, listening to feedback from parents, this has proved to be valuable.

It will be broadcast tonight on Bishop FM, 105.9 if you're oldschool or listen live on their website http://www.bishopfm.com/ if you're a new age cool kid.

We have a great selection of Music thanks to our new licence. The show is being broken up into 5 minute chunks so if you're sick of the sound of 6th formers it's the ultimate compromise!
