At St John’s College our charities and fund raising days correspond with the Liturgical year. All pupils from nursery to sixth form are involved in helping and supporting both the local and world community. Pupils at St John’s College are always enthusiastic and keen to help those around them, and as part of the school family, they realise that in order to share the world, we must share our resources and if people are in need, we should join together to do whatever is necessary.
The Advent Term begins with the Harvest Festival; pupils join together to celebrate the harvest and create hampers of produce that are distributed throughout the parish of St Cadoc’s by the SVP. Also, during this term, we support BBC’s Children in Need, the British Legion’s Poppy Appeal and finally the “Box of Love” Shoe Box Appeal.
During the Lent Term, the School supports a variety of charities including HCPT, Mary’s Meals and Mission Together, Pope Francis’ chosen charity. Pupils fundraise but also “go without” in order to save their pennies for people who need help most.
As a school, we take pride in our understanding of world community and hope to instill a sense of respect and compassion in all our pupils as they find their place in life.
