Family Subscription 2019/2020

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:

BIC: ULSB IE 2D IBAN: IE59 ULSB 9859 5076 1833 69

Please note that any excess funds raised by the association are donated back to the school. We appreciate your support and thank you in advance. Yours sincerely,
Christine Higgins
Chairperson

JPA Class Groups

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

If you would like to join the class WhatsApp group approach your class rep and provide your phone number or go to our website and log your details:
