St John’s School hosted its annual Community Christmas Lunch on Sunday 3 December, extending a warm welcome to several members of the local community. We were overjoyed to welcome guests from local community associations, including day centres, care homes, and other local residents.

During the festive gathering, St John’s pupils took on the role of hosts, serving a delightful feast featuring the traditional turkey, mulled wine, and Christmas pudding. Beyond the delicious food, pupils engaged in warm and meaningful conversations with their guests.
The St John’s School Choral Society performed carols, and enchanted guests with their harmonious melodies which echoed the spirit and warmth of the festive season.

The success of this event is attributed to the dedication and kindness demonstrated by the pupils, reflecting the values instilled by their participation in the Community Service Unit (CSU). St John’s School has a proud history of supporting the community, dating back to its original purpose of assisting the children of poor clergy. This legacy continues today, with a strong commitment to giving back and supporting both one another and the broader community.
