We would like to take this opportunity to thank Shiying Wang for her work as Treasurer with the JSPA over the last three years.

A special thanks also goes to outgoing members Anne Bladeni, Sally Tucker, Nicola Farrah, Emma Tankovich, Ariadne Bilardi and Melinda Li for all their contributions with the JSPA. The JSPA and committee members look forward to a wonderful year of 2024 with our newly elected committee members.

If organising events is something you enjoy doing, we are looking for volunteers to assist with co-ordinating the JSPA 2024 Welcome Picnic (Term 1) and JSPA 2024 Mothers Day Breakfast (Term 2) and the JSPA 2024 Fathers Day Breakfast (Term 3) events. If you are interested in learning more about how you can help with any of these events, please express your interest to Natalie Bode by email.

The JSPA endeavours to develop a strong and vibrant school community, and also provide financial and physical support to the Junior School. A wonderful collaboration with students and community has raised $5502 and donated to the School’s Classroom Collections project in Community Giving 2023. This will allow the School to purchase approximately 250 high quality books. The JSK Centenary Tea Towels were designed by JSK students, with each student drawing a small picture of themselves and each year level having their own special design. We are very thankful to the children for designing their own special tea towels as a memento for the Carey centenary and also to the families who purchased the tea towels. It is only with such generous contributions that these books can be purchased and used by our children in their classrooms to further engage with their love of reading.


If you would like further information or have any queries relating to the JSPA, we would be delighted to hear from you.
