1 June 2018 – activity at both St John’s buildings. Old St John’s held an open day for past and present pupils, friends and neighbours to see round the school 26 days before it closes for summer for the last time. Pupils were taking people round on conducted tours and there were many exhibits in the hall recalling many years. We saw how hand-writing is taught – a skill not yet lost. Classrooms showed that the Egyptians and Romans were being intensively studied and there was masses of amazing art.
Chairs were on tables, to help the cleaners. In 3 weeks time this will come to an end.
Meanwhile at new St John’s, the grand sign at the front door is up and the nursery garden is in preparation, with the old car park cleared ready for Treverlen Park, Phase 1.
