Supporting your Child’s Positive Mental Health and Wellbeing

Venue: Johnstown Girls’ School
Date: Tuesday 28th May 2019
Time: 7.30 – 9.30

The Johnstown Parents’ Association (JPA) has invited the National Parents Council Primary to provide a training programme in conjunction with St. Patrick’s Mental Health Services.
This programme supports parents to encourage and promote positive mental health and wellbeing in their children. The programme also explores how the building of resilience in children helps them to manage and cope with the day to day stresses of life as they occur.
Parents who attend this session will:

  1. Explore the factors that influence mental health and well being in their child.
  2. Learn how to build and nurture resilience within their own child.
  3. Be given tips on how best to support their child’s positive mental health and wellbeing. As this event is sponsored by the JPA and supported by the schools we hope it will be well attended by parents/guardians. To book your place,

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.
