As a Parent or Carer of a Child at our school, you are automatically a member of the St Joan of Arc School Parents Association, warmly referred to in the playground as the PA. Welcome!
What is the PA? It’s here to support the school through fundraising and building up a strong parent community to work with the teachers and staff. Fundraising targets are set each year with the Head Teacher, and cover things the school cannot afford on its own like new playground equipment, technology or school trips for each class. To achieve its goals, the PA runs several events during the school year, including International Evening (October), Quiz Night (February), BBQ & Auction (May) and the Summer Fete (June/July). We also run the popular monthly Cake and Used Uniform Stalls and organise treats for the children at Christmas and Easter.
How do I find out about events? You will receive information about the PA from the School Newsletter and via your Class Rep. To stay in touch, we welcome you to join the PA Facebook and check this website.
Why get involved? Your child(ren) will benefit from PA activities throughout their time at school, whether it’s dancing at a PA event disco, attending a free class trip, playing on new playground equipment or enjoying a well earned cake at the monthly cake stall. Your involvement with the PA is a great way to show them how important and valuable school is. Please plan to get involved by attending PA events and volunteering when you can – no experience necessary and all help welcome. Please write with any questions.
