Parents & Friends
WELCOME, EVERYONE, TO ST JOHN’S PARENTS AND FRIENDS
The St Johns P & F is a vibrant group of parents who meet once a month to discuss any matters which come under the umbrella of the Parents and Friends Association. The P&F is guided by its executive committee and our principal, Mrs Donaugh Shirley as well as Fr Jamie Collins.
The committee is also responsible for the following sub committees:
- The Moonlight Fair committee
- The St John’s Race Day committee
- The Cookies Cafe Tuckshop
- The Uniform shop
Our P & F is committed to helping supply the school community with valuable resources and subsidizing educational school excursions when required. Our funds are raised by way of the various sub committees already mentioned.
ST JOHN’S FAMILY RACE DAY!
The St John’s Family Race Day is held in August each year. It is intended not only as a fundraiser for the school but also a social day for families who have been hibernating over the winter months. The race day is open to the whole Roma community.
The day begins with a luncheon for adults followed by a 5 race program and licensed bar for parents, and an afternoon of activities for the children from 1.30, consisting of a jumping castle, face painting, sandpit and colouring in table. There are fashions of the field for all age groups, and live entertainment, with the day concluding around 5.30pm.
THE MOONLIGHT FAIR
The Moonlight Fair is the major fundraiser for the P & F held each year in October. It is a fun evening for the entire family starting at 5.30 pm in the afternoon running into the evening. Each year the committee organises many different attractions to entertain the crowds.
Parents and students are encouraged to get involved with the committee headed by Heather McHugh and Leesa Murray. There are many ways to lend a hand and help make the evening a success.
Please talk to your child’s teacher or contact a committee member by emailing Moonlight.firstname.lastname@example.org to see how you can help.
