A big thank you!

As we come to the end of another school year, we would like to take this opportunity to extend a big thank you to all of our sponsors, who, every year, support the Johnstown Parents Association. Without this support, we would not be able to run all of the events, that are such an important part of what we do each year. Please offer them your support, in return, right through the summer months, and into next year.

We would also like to thank you, the parents, for your continued support and assistance. You too are an integral part of what we do.

To our teachers and SNAs, in both schools. Have a well-deserved break and thank you for assisting us through the year. Mrs Quinn and Mr Cadogan, thank you both for your assistance also and for being our Go-To people when we need the school’s support.

To both caretakers, Peter & Gareth, and to the school secretaries, Gaye, Muirghen & Anne, thank you for all your hard work, including the late evenings, and help, behind the scenes. So much of what you do goes unnoticed.

A special word to the children. Their welfare is top of all of our agendas, and they make what we do so worthwhile. To the boys & girls who are moving on to secondary school, we wish you well in the future. To those children joining the schools in September, welcome. We look forward to meeting you, and your parents in the new school year, and hopefully some of you parents will join us on the Johnstown Parents Association.

Finally. We hope you all have a great summer and we look forward to seeing you all in September.

Johnstown Boys National School – Used Uniforms – June 2018

Monday, 25.06.2018, is the last day for uniforms in The Boys National School.

From Tuesday 26.06.2018, boys will be allowed to wear non-uniform clothes to school.

NOTE – We ask that students going on school tours next week, hold onto and wear their blue polo shirts for their school tour days only. This is to assist teachers and minders during the tours, to identify their groups.

Used uniforms, in good, clean condition, can be taken to school from Tuesday 26.06.2018 onwards. Uniforms will be sorted and sized between Tuesday & Wednesday of next week and on Thursday morning, 29.06.2018, at 9.10am, uniforms can be viewed and collected, free of charge in “The Halla”, in the girl’s school.

This is a great opportunity to get some uniform items for your children for the coming year, and also an opportunity to give your children’s current uniforms to other parents for use next year.

We ask that any name tags be removed and again, that those uniform items be sent to the school in good, clean condition.

Thank You.

Parents, we need your help!

As we come close to the end of another school year the Johnstown Parents Association are busier
than ever. Between now and the end of June we have the boys & girls communion breakfasts,
the new parents night in both schools, the 6th class graduations and the 6th class social and ice cream day.

The JPA has already given each school €2000 to put towards facilities and programmes for your
children and we would like to make another contribution before the end of the year.

In order to do all these things for the children, we rely on the parents support throughout the year.
We have one more fundraising event before the end of the year and we need your help. Based on
the success of last year’s big raffle we have decided to run it again. We already have some great
prizes from businesses far and wide but to make this a real success we need more.

If you own your own business or work for a generous employer you may be able to help!

We are still looking for prizes or monetary amounts to allow us to purchase prizes for the raffle.
We will list all businesses that support the JPA on our website and Facebook page. Please lend us your support.

Please contact Caroline 087 2299796 or Tim 087 9040491 if you would like to donate a prize.
We will be sending the raffle tickets home in the children’s bags over the next number of weeks.
