Annual General Meeting.
The JPA AGM took place on September 20th. A big thank you to those who attended on such rainy night.
We say farewell and thank you to the committee members who have stepped down and are delighted to welcome new members on board.

Family Subscription.
The Parents’ Association works to help the school to enrich your child’s educational experience. It also aims to promote the school community by organising activities throughout the year.
Last year we put on some wonderful events and had several highlights throughout the year… Table Quizzes, Easter Art Competition, Ice Cream Day, 6th Class Social & Summer extravaganza Raffle.

Your contribution is highly valued and allows the Parents’ Association to complete this important work. The subscription is €10 per family but whatever you can afford will be much appreciated.
Please return your donation to the school where it will be collected or if you prefer to pay electronically, please use the following details:

Please note your child’s name and class on the envelope or bank transfer details.

Johnstown Girls National School 50th Celebration and Reunion.

Hello to all parents!

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
Time: 7.30pm
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.

Best regards,
James, Paula, Lynne, Bernadette, Elaine, Siobhan, Caroline, Fiona, Gemma, Tim & Joe.
