Parent Council

Welcome to St John’s Parent Council.  The Parent Council was established in 2006 following a legislative Act to replace the School Board and PTA.

The objective of the Parent Council is to offer all parents the opportunity to have their say in their child’s education.   The Parent Council must have a minimum of twelve and maximum parents.  Parent Council members can take forward any educational issues and suggestions on behalf of parents as well as fundraising for the school.


Join the Parent Council

It’s easy to get involved in the Parent Council just come along to one of the scheduled meetings and have your say.  Meetings are held quarterly in the evening at the school and last approximately 1 and 1/2 hours.  You can be as involved as you want to be.
