Parents & Friends

Parents & Friends Association (P&F)

The St John’s School P&F endeavours to foster community and positive relationships by organising activities for the students and families.  Secondly, the St John’s School P&F enables families to support the students and school through fundraising initiatives so that resources and equipment, which may otherwise be unavailable, can be purchased.

The St John’s School P&F meets three times a term on Monday evenings, at 6.00pm, in the Staffroom.
