Parent, Teacher & Friends Association

Together, we can make make our boys’ time at St John’s memorable

The St John’s College PTFA is multi-talented, fun-loving group of past and present parents who meet on a monthly basis to discuss and plan various activities associated with the College.

The PTFA's aims are to:

  • Strengthen community spirit
  • Support the College through informing parents of school related issues and curriculum developments
  • Help in raising funds to provide improved facilities and other curriculum “extras” for our boys
  • Provide practical support through catering and hosting school events
  • Bring any parents’ concerns to the attention of the Board of Trustees
     

Involvements in the College and community include:

  • Catering for Report Evenings, Silent Art Auction and Music Evenings
  • Presenting parental concerns to the Board of Trustees and Ministry of Education
  • Co-ordinating the biannual Cultural Review at the Academy of Performing Arts
  • Small fundraising ventures
  • Providing feedback on the Strategic Plan and other College issues
  • Making funds available for extra-curricular needs
  • Co-ordinating the Year 13 Leavers' Dinner

Fundraising is not the central focus of this PTFA as we feel it is more about being part of a community and lending a helping hand when and where it is needed.
