Sports Committee

The sports committee are a small but dedicated group of parents who are working to not only better our own children's school, and sporting experiences, but yours as well.  Why not join us for a meeting, or lend a hand at one of our famous sausage sizzles!  It's great fun and not only will your kids thank you, but our will as well.

 

The sports committee meet regularly to discuss upcoming events on the sporting calendar and plan fundraising events.   The sports committee provides assistance with organising collection and counting of money from these events.  If you have any suggestions for fundraisers or know of any sporting equipment or projects that need our attention, please let us know.

 

The sporting calendar is set by the Qld Primary Schools Sports Association and the School District Regions.  JHSS is in the district of West Akuna and the zone of Metropolitan West (MetWest).  The school's Sports Coordinator then plans for our own Interschool events like the cross county, junior and senior athletics and swimming carnivals.  Our part as subcommittee, is to provide food and drink stalls at these carnivals for the convenience of parents and students, and to raise funds to boost the small sporting budget of the school.

 

The sports committee meet each term and if you would like more information, please email jhsssports@gmail.com

Chaplaincy Committee

The chaplaincy committees main goal is to support Chappy Katie in her community awareness programs and fundraising efforts. Chappy provides a variety of essential counselling and guidance services to the JHSS community. While it is called chaplaincy no religion is actually discussed with the children or at a meeting. Chappy works closely with admin team, teachers, parents and students to primarily focus on:

 

  • Grief counselling

  • Friendship awareness and councilling
