The role of the JPC Parents and Friends Association is to engage and build tangible relationships with parents, parish and school so that students may experience a sense of Christian community by embracing new friendships and build a sense of belonging and trust. The P&F works closely with the school Principal and school authorities to achieve common goals and school vision and also acts as a forum for ideas and discussion on any relevant issue that will benefit the education of the children.
Meeting once a month on the second Tuesday of each school term, the Committee plays a very important behind the scenes role at John Paul College. For example, in 2019, the following projects were funded by the P&F; buses for ACC, Science Investigation Night, Year 12 graduation gifts and Humphreys Dance Lessons. In 2020, to date, the P&F has funded shade sails for the new canteen and Humphreys Dance Lessons. Parents and friends are invited to join the Committee or just attend to find out more. All new members are very welcome. The P&F is the perfect opportunity to meet those involved at the school and to be across what is happening around the college.
The next meeting will be held at 6pm on Tuesday, 11th August 2020 via Zoom Video Conferencing. Contact Sharon Henderson P&F President for more details via email: email@example.com.
“As a Parents and Friends body, we are strong believers that communication between school and home is vital. We know that building understanding and support between teachers and parents is essential for the overall development of our children. It is only with teachers, students and parents working together that we can create a truly great school, which we believe is the case at John Paul College. We feel that the more opportunities we provide for parents and staff to meet, talk and work together, the greater the chance of developing a strong partnership. On behalf of the P&F, I strongly encourage all families to be a part of our parent body in an active way. Please do consider joining us and attend our meetings to be a part of our decision making. If you would like to contact me to find out more, please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. I would be only too happy to discuss the benefits of being a P&F Committee Member. Thankyou.”
