Cluster News- retirement
It is with sadness (and a certain amount of envy) that we wish Bernadette McCrory, Head teacher of St John’s Primary a fond farewell. Miss McCrory has been at St John’s for 7 years and 41 years in total in teaching (she started her first job in August 1972). Currently she has no plans for retirement- but is not worried in the slightest about how she will occupy her time!
The Music department have changed the date of their annual Christmas concert to the evening of 11th December.
