Alleyn's Junior School Association
The Alleyn's Junior School Association (AJSA) was formed to offer parents the opportunity to interact with the life of the School by promoting an inclusive community atmosphere. Membership of the AJSA is automatic for parents when their children join the School.
The AJSA not only supports various school events but also organises social functions for parents and families outside school. The AJSA Uniform Shop is a particularly well-used facility that sells second hand uniform as well as a small selection of new items.
The Association is run by an annually elected committee of parents which includes a Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, four Parent Representatives from each year and the President (the Headmaster). Committee meetings usually take place twice a term and cover a range of subjects such as planning social functions, receiving news about the Junior School and information from the Senior School. These meetings provide an excellent forum for feedback between parents and the School.
Committee meetings usually last for about an hour and a summary is sent to all parents via their Year Representative with minutes posted on the parent section of the Hub (the School's intranet).
There is an Annual General Meeting which takes place in September to which all parents are invited. The AGM is followed by a drinks reception.
Other AJSA activities include: parents' year parties; Christmas parties and children's discos; the Holly Fair, social events such as quiz nights, wine tastings and race nights; running the AJSA Uniform Shop (second-hand uniforms); Founder's Day activities; and Parents' Talk Evenings, where topics have included e-safety, first aid and healthy eating.
