Colegio Saint John celebrated its 20th anniversary this past Sunday, December 2nd. The Family Fair took place in the school grounds from 10:00am to 6:00pm filled with activities for the whole family including clowns, raffles, talent shows and the grand closing event – a performance by Dream Circus.
The day was filled from start to finish with a constant flow of past and present students and their families, who came to celebrate this fun-filled event organized by the school’s Parents Association, who worked very hard in order for the event to flow smoothly. Enjoying all the entertainment and food, served by the high school students, the families had an incredible amount of activities to choose from; video games, face painting, dance contests, karaoke and ping pong.
The school’s headmistress, Hilda Alvarez, was present the whole day to celebrate this amazing personal accomplishment – the 20th anniversary of Colegio Saint John, which she founded in 1992.
In amongst all the fun and games was the raffle – in which Alexandra Papadopoulos won a dinner at Chinois in the Marina Casa de Campo and two other parents won gift certificates for Papa Jack’s bar in Altos de Chavón, Casa de Campo.
Pupils of the Colegio Saint John enjoyed a fun day!
Congratulations to Hilda Alvarez and the Colegio St. John!

A beautiful and inspiring St John School graduation ceremony!
Last Saturday the 7th of July, the Saint John School celebrated its graduation ceremony at Casa de Campo’s Flamboyan conference centre – a beautiful event where enthusiastic, talented and outgoing young boys and girls of the Saint John School in Buena Vista Norte, La Romana finally received their diplomas!
Déjà vu? How many excellent Casa de Campo parties have ended at Minitas Beach over the years? Too many to count! And on Saturday the 7th of July, the OPTIMUS graduation party for the St John’s school graduating class of 2012, started with a formal ceremony at the Flamboyan conference center…but many hours later ended at Minitas Beach! The dawn of a new era for the young graduates!
