On Sunday 11 December, we were overjoyed to warmly welcome 30 members of our local community to St John’s School for a special Community Christmas Lunch.
This annual event brings together guests from local community associations, including The Fairfield Day Centre, Milner House Care Home, Ashtead Good Neighbours and local residents to the School.
During the afternoon, several St John’s pupils served a fantastic festive feast, with the traditional turkey, mulled wine and Christmas pudding. Alongside this, the pupils spent time talking with their guests, and enjoying a quiz and carol singing.
St John’s runs a very successful Community Service Unit (CSU). The Unit thrives owing to the passion and kindness evident amongst pupils. Historically, St John’s purpose was originally to support the children of poor clergy and today there remains a very strong spirit of giving and support both to each other and to the extended community.
