We are delighted to advise you that the Johnstown Parents’ Association will continue its work following the Annual General Meeting on the 24th September 2019. Thanks to all the parents who attended and we hope you enjoyed the excellent Internet Safety Talk from Zeeko.
Welcome to Ruth, Janice, Sarah, Sam and Sarah who join us this year. The association aims to promote the school community by organising activities throughout the year.
The Parents’ Association does not have a fundraising role and we have some expenses for which we need your help. We would like to ask each family for a voluntary subscription of €10 for expenses to be covered in 2019/2020.
Contributions are needed for: The annual insurance premium is €205 Costs for speakers and events such as Ice Cream Day! Catering costs to cover the Communion and Confirmation events.
Please return your donation to the school in the envelope provided with your name and class where it will be collected or if you prefer to pay electronically, please use the following details:

JPA Class Groups It has come to our attention that some parents of the Junior Infants Girls’ School classes have not yet joined the class WhatsApp group. These groups are helpful for sharing communications from JPA, homework queries and also for organising parties and events.
A class representative has been assigned to each junior infant class: Ms Raymond – Sinead Peacock Ms Reid – Jane Rush Ms Breen – Allison Kearney & Karen Bennett
We would like to welcome everyone back to the new school year and a special welcome to the new parents joining the school.
We hope all the boys and girls have settled back in nicely. It’s going to be another fun & exciting year with all our events and new plans!!!
We would like to bring your attention to a very important event coming up:
Annual General Meeting.
The 2018 JPA AGM details are as follows:
Date: Thursday 20th September
Venue: Johnstown Boys School
Please note: As the majority of the committee members are leaving this year, your Parents Association needs you!
The following is just a brief idea as to what is involved with being a member:
– One evening a month for meetings
– Willing to help with organising the fun activities for the boys and girls
– Helping to support the school social events
– Enthusiasm and a team player
The JPA raises approximately €10,000 per annum which is shared between the schools.
These funds are paid towards:
• Ice Cream day
• Communion and Confirmation breakfasts
• School Graduation
• Easter Art Competition
• 6th Class Social
• School Donations
Without new committee members, none of this can happen. We encourage you all to come along to the AGM.
