Spring 2018 Report from Shonda

  • We are pleased to say that the school continues to thrive in difficult circumstances, pupil numbers are increasing and in the recent exams St John’s is in the top 10% of schools in the Likoni area.Sports matches
  • This success has come at a cost and Shonda UK has donated more monies to the school than we are receiving. Putting the project onto a sustainable footing is a key focus area this year.
