SJC PARENTS ASSOCIATION (SJC PA)
SJC PA is made of up of a group of enthusiastic parents from the school, with representation from each year group through infants, juniors and seniors.
Our key role is to organise fundraising/social events throughout the year for the children, parents and school community to enjoy. The money we raise will be used to support projects within the school that are outside of the curriculum and therefore cannot be fully funded by the school, together with external charities. SJC PA will seek input/ideas directly from the children in infants/juniors and seniors with regards to the dispersal of funds raised and external charities to support.
Forthcoming fundraising events for 2018 are detailed below. Please do check regularly for full details and updates.
Finally, thank you for your continued support and please contact us with any new ideas or offers of help in any way. The SJC PA team would be delighted to hear from you!
