On Thursday 8th March we here at St John's hosted our annual Gymnastics competition where over 40 children from 4 other local Primary Schools competed.
All children involved enjoyed participating and the experience of showboating their abilities in front of over 70 spectators.
Awards were split between the schools, however St John's pupils placed 1st in Year 4 overall and a special mention to Issac Lewis who is the first boy to achieve first place overall in his age category.

We would like to thank all schools who attended the recent Dodgeball tournament for a fun, enjoyable and competitive competition. Our St John's team were prepared and certainly ready for action!
The tournament involved five local Primary Schools comprising of St John's, Cheslyn Hay, Havergal and Featherstone who all competed against each other playing four games each.
The results were then collated and St John's were successful in winning all of their games, resulting in them winning the competition.

Congratulations to our Year 3/4 golf team.
The competition was held at Cheslyn Hay High school, with 9 schools attending, Some schools travelling some distance.
As this was our first attempt at golf, we didn’t quite know what to expect. However all 10 children were ready for the challenge, after 6 weeks practice.
All children played their part in achieving first place and now have the opportunity to compete in the county finals.
I would also like to thank the vast amount of spectators that came to watch their child’s success.
The Year 3/4 cross country teams shared great success last week with year 3 boys and girls winning their team events. Charlotte Smith and Isaac Lewis both crossed the line in first place.
Furthermore, the year 4 boys and girls achieved the same success winning their team event. Ruby Buggins and James Hodgson once again finished in first place.
This means the school qualifies for the District final dates to be confirmed.
