The JRSA Parent-Teacher Association
Welcome to the JRSA, the friendly John Roan School Association.
We meet every term to provide an essential link between parents/carers and the school. The meetings are relaxed, social and informative. We discuss issues relating to the school, fundraising ideas and upcoming social events. The Headteacher attends and provides a Headteacher’s report on life at the school.
Over the last few years, we have been able to give different departments and areas of the school some support with funding which has been raised through the JRSA. This has included new equipment for The Hope Memorial Trust at Braithwaite, as well as the Geography, Science, Design and Technology, Art, PE and Music Departments.
Throughout the year, we hold quiz nights, a Summer BBQ, support concerts organised by the Music Department and provide refreshments and a friendly face at Parent and Open Evenings.
Come along to the next meeting for a chat and a coffee.
JRSA meetings are held in the Westcombe Park site and start at 6.45pm -
14th October = Annual General Meeting
