Welcome to St John the Evangelist Catholic School!
St John is a decile 1 school in Otara, Auckland, with a student community that is 95% Pasifika. They also started their Garden to Table journey late in term 1 by weeding the raised garden beds ready for planting.
Like Henderson North, the arrival of the TV cameras created much excitement, with some of the students recognising Garden to Table Ambassador Al Brown from their knife skills videos, viewed the day before! However, they soon realised that filming for TV can be a pretty boring business, with lots of waiting around.
The TV show The Project was also at the school filming, so we're looking forward to seeing more about St John on TV soon.
