Science teacher, Dan Boyle, had a great idea to highlight the wonderful work that was going on by past students of St John Bosco Arts College who are now employed as key workers. This was the school’s way of recognising their fabulous contribution to society especially at this time of crisis.


The college used its social media platforms to reach out to their past students who are key workers. The response was wonderful and there is an increasing number of past students being added to the dedicated webpage.


The reaction from staff and students at the college has been a huge sense of pride. Many staff have remembered with fondness the students they taught and are so proud of what their wonderful students have gone on to achieve and how they are going the extra mile during this unprecedented time. They are a living example of the ethos of the college and how loving kindness can impact the community in so many ways.


Headteacher, Darren Gidman, says “We are so proud of all our students’ past and present in the way they are coping at this difficult time. We are delighted to be able to share with the whole community the outstanding work of our students who have gone on to become key workers as a small way to thank them for their dedication and hard work”.
