St John’s Regional College has an active Parents’ & Friends’ Association which meets at 7:30pm in the Staff Room on the second Tuesday of each month during the school term (see dates below for 2017 meeting times).
The Parents’ & Friends’ Association was first formed in the 1960’s and existed as St Mary’s Ladies Auxiliary and St John’s Mens’ Auxiliary until 1969 when it at the direction of the College Board became St John’s College Auxiliary.
The aim of the Association is to create opportunities for families to familiarise themselves with the running of St John’s in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, while getting to know other parents and staff. The Parents’ & Friends’ Association also has representation on the St John’s College Board.
The Parents’ & Friends’ Association has funded or contributed to several large projects which will continue to benefit the widest cross section of students possible. Some of these projects have included Computer Work Stations and refurbishment of the Reading Area in the Brother Amedy Molloy Resource Centre, Sewing Machines for Textiles, a Coffee Machine for Graduates’ Restaurant, Interactive Whiteboards and Data Projectors, the refit of the Dance Studio and Canteen refurbishment.
The Parents’ & Friends’ Association also paid for the purchase and installation of the NEC Video Walls in the Brother Leo Scollen Stadium.
