Dear Parents/Guardians,


We have come to the end of Term 1 of the 2016-17 Academic Year.  This has been a very action-packed term and we have so much for which to be thankful.

Some of the more memorable moments:


·         Opening of school and welcoming the new additions to our SJCSF family; Form One, Lower Six, and transfer-in students and their parents,

·         The annual Teacher Appreciation Breakfast hosted by you, Parents of SJCSF,

·         Momentum 2016,

·         Celebrating our scholarship winners at Foundress Day Mass,

·         Becoming a member of the UNESCO Associated Schools Projects Network (ASPnet),

·         The launch of The Young at Heart Art Project at the J.C. McDonald Home for the Aged.  An initiative of Ms Sabrina Sinanan and her Upper 6 CAPE Visual Arts students.


Our annual fundraiser, Momentum 2016 (formerly Garden Party) was a resounding success. I am happy to report that preliminary figures show we have realised a profit of $213,653.51!  Parents, there are still some donation sheets outstanding, even though several deadlines and extensions of deadlines have passed.  I humbly ask your assistance in having your daughters return those sheets that may still be in their possession as there is the matter of accountability.

I wish to expressly thank you parents for your contribution to the success of Momentum 2016, re your assistance to your daughters with presales as well as to the Parents’ stall on the day, which made $5,878.  We look forward to Momentum 2017.


I also wish thank those Parents who paid the Incidental Fees.  To those of you who have not yet paid, kindly do so as soon as possible. We desperately need your contributions to be able to continue paying for your daughter’s security while on the school compound and other incidentals as outlined in the slips that have been enclosed with your daughter’s reports.  It is just $600/school year, $15.38/week.  


Please take note of and save the dates for the upcoming fundraising events in the new term organised by you, the Parents of SJCSF:

·         January 28 – SJCSF Invitational 5K

·         February 12 – Parents of SJCSF Carnival Cooler Fete.  Tickets are available at the school and from members of the Parents of SJCSF Executive.

You are reminded that when you registered your daughters as students of the school, you are automatically registered as members of the parent body.  Your assistance is always needed in whatever way to ensure the success of these and any other events organised for and on behalf of the school.  If you are not already on the mailing list, kindly send an email to the Secretary, Mrs Marsha Shah at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Take the opportunity at the same time to indicate how you can be of assistance in either or both events. 

All monies realised from fundraising events go towards school improvement and making your daughters’ educational experience here the best it can be.


I take this opportunity, on behalf of our Ag Vice Principal, Mrs Debra East and Staff, to wish you and your family a Happy and Holy Christmas. 


School reopens on Monday, January 09, 2017


Yours sincerely,


Jennifer Manwaring
