Thank you
A massive thank you to all the wonderful parents who come along and help the P&F at all our various events during the year, from serving tea and coffees at Grandparents' Day to selling a sausage or a soft drink at our Bunnings Sausage Sizzle days. We couldn't do all that we do without you!

Bunnings Sausage Sizzle 
The Bunnings Sausage Sizzle raised $1000 and was a great day out for everyone involved. These funds help pay for events like our end of year Sundowner where parents and staff get to mingle and enjoy a relaxed chat at the end of the year. See information below.




Disco - Festival of Lights Friday 20 October

PrimaryDiscoFlyer Term4 2017 1
Our second and last disco of the year is happening on Friday 20 October. This event is always well attended, especially by our Year 7s who are enjoying their last disco with the Primary School. Tickets are only $5 at the Door. Session details are on the flyer attached.

Please note that all students in the K-2 session will need an adult to stay with them the whole time in the disco. This disco is our special Diwali disco that celebrates the Festival of Lights so make sure you wear your best and brightest.

Annual Sundowner - Wednesday 22 November
Wednesday 22 November will be our second annual P&F Sundowner. It will be held in the Technology Centre at John Wollaston with catering by our wonderful JWACS Hospitality students. This is a wonderful opportunity for our staff and parents to get together to mingle and informally celebrate another successful year at JWACS. Please note that this is an adult only event.

RSVP details will follow shortly.


Morning Tea – Chalk Café
We know that night time commitments with small children can be hard, that's why the Committee is trying new ways to connect with the school community.

On the first Tuesday of every month during school term time, some of the Committee will be at the Chalk Café to have a cuppa and a chat with anyone who would like to come down and find out what the P&F is doing or talk about some ideas of their own. We are all busy parents just like you and would love to see new faces and hear new voices discussing how we make our terrific school an even better place to be for our children, or just meet a new friend. So drop the kids at class and come on down to the Chalk Café in the Technology Centre.

Last Chalk Café for 2017:

  • Tuesday 10 October (Last Chalk Café of the year due to Year 12 finishing)
