St John's Association (Parent Teacher Association)
St John’s Association (SJA) is an organisation of parents, staff, our church and wider community. We aim to encourage closer links between home and school to benefit the children at our school. All parents, guardians and teachers are automatically members and everyone (even grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and neighbours!) are encouraged to get involved.
Our aim is to enrich the educational experience of the children at St John’s through both fund-raising activities and organising initiatives which benefit the children. We also aim to strengthen our links with the church and our community.
