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, parents and staff, who every year, support the Johnstown Parents Association (JPA). Without this support, we would not be able to run events that are such an important part of what we do each year.
Mrs Quinn and Mr Cadogan, teachers, special needs assistants, secretaries and caretakers, we hope you have a well-deserved break and thank you for assisting us through the year.
To the boys and girls who are moving on to secondary school, we wish you well in the future. To those children joining the schools in September, we look forward to meeting you and your parents in the new school year, and hopefully, some of the new parents will join us on the Johnstown Parents’ Association!
We will be having our Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Tuesday 24th September and we have lined up an excellent guest speaker. So put the date into your diaries. We hope you all have a great summer and we look forward to seeing you all in September.
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.
