PFA Annual General Meeting and Book Fair Evening with Guest Speaker , Thursday June 12th

The evening will run in conjunction with the Scholastic Book Fair and we are delighted to host Joan Turner as our guest speaker.

She is a highly respected expert in literacy within the educational communities in which she has worked.

Joan is an engaging speaker who immediately connects with an audience to encourage discussion and debate. Joan will talk about literacy across all areas of the school, how the emphasis changes and how we as parents can assist our children at home.
