Neighbourhood Relations

St. John’s is so fortunate to be a part of an urban community. We are conveniently located near Arbutus and Broadway and are proud to be a part of this thriving and growing Kitsilano community.

That also means that the roads and sidewalks around our school can be busy, especially during morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up times. We have a driving plan we ask our parents to abide by, have parent volunteers overseeing the crosswalks in the morning and regularly seek input from our neighbours as to how we are doing and ways we can improve.

St. John's School - Fraser Academy Pen Pals Programme 
In an effort to make a stronger connection to our neighbour school, Fraser Academy, our Grade 5 class exchange pen pal letters with students at the Fraser Academy. 

The students have seen one another on the field and sidewalks all year long and were curious what school is like for the students down the street. They have made personal and academic connections and have begun to build friendships together. 
We are committed to being good neighbours and are grateful to IGA for sponsoring some of our events, nearby residents who join us for our concerts and other green thumb neighbours who keep the roundabout gardens looking so beautiful.
