Wonderful Me

We have a 'Wonderful Me Board' in the school hall, on which we proudly display our pupil's personal achievements for all to see. If your child has been awarded any certificates, medals or trophies out of school that you would like to share, send your child with them to school and we will take a picture to go on our board. Alternatively, you can email your pictures to n.pearce@deepcar-st-johns.sheffield.sch.uk

The Superkids awards hosted by the Sheffield Star have been going for over 2 decades. The event celebrates the brave, talented and inspirational youngsters in our city. The award night, which was on the 3rd of December, was a night full of proud parents, carers and teachers. Nine amazing children all received awards for being fearless and an inspiration to all. We are really proud to have one of our pupils amongst the candidates. Receiving a nomination

for fearless bravery following a very tough year due to illness. In March, she became very ill, really quickly and was diagnosed with a rare heart condition. She was taken to hospital with an extremely high heart rate and several attempts failed to reduce it. The doctors at the hospital saved her life. She now faces an operation when she is 13. Despite a few setbacks since then, she has always remained positive and never complains. She missed quite a bit of school but she took on extra work at home to catch up. She has now pledged to take part in the Glow Run at Endcliffe Park on the 18th December, to raise money for the hospital that saved her life. Her teachers say that she is a positive role model to everyone in the school. She got a special mention in Collective Worship.
