Spirit Week 2011 - Currently In Progress!

St. John's Academy is currently in the midst of its annual 'Spirit Week'!

Our student body at St. John's is grouped into three 'Great Houses' - the House of Jerusalem, the House of Alexandria, and the House of Constantinople - which bring together students of all ages and grades for social activities, community work, and supportive friendships.

Each year, 'Spirit Week' provides an opportunity for the Houses to show their spirit by students embellishing their uniforms with House colours, creating special banners with House crests, and generally showing enthusiasm and energy for the life of the Academy.

Every day during the week, Houses gather together at lunchtime, show their spirit throughout the day, and foster the joyful Lenten spirit of fellowship, brotherhood and virtue that marks out St. John's year-round, but which we especially emphasize in this season.

Students, parents, family and friends may want to remind themselves of the joys of last year's Spirit Week, by watching this video...
