Important Dates

JSRACS runs a full calendar of events for students and school families and all families are strongly encouraged to subscribe to the JSRACS Community Calendar which can be found via SEQTA.


Parents are welcome at major school functions such as Founders’ Day and the Commissioning of Student Councillors, as well as smaller events such as the Primary School Assemblies.

The dates of events published on the calendar are as accurate as possible, however, because dates need to be planned so far in advance, due to unforeseen circumstances some may need to be changed. The calendar will be updated and added to as the year progresses, and where a date or time needs to be altered every endeavour will be made to inform parents via email well in advance of the event.


Parents are asked to ensure they have provided administration with their contact email address so that they can receive various parent notifications and newsletters in order to be kept up-to-date with school activities and events.


Parent Information Evenings keep parents up to date with programmes in the school, help them assist their children in making important educational choices, and offer insights into issues facing young people and families.


Sporting events always feature strongly and the swimming, athletics and cross country carnivals always enjoy good support from families.  If you enjoy the arts, you’ll be spoilt for choice at JSRACS.  Our calendar offers many vocal and instrumental concerts, dance performances, drama productions and an annual art exhibition.


The Parents and Friends Association is an important contributor to the JSRACS calendar and all parents are encouraged to attend the P&F meetings.  Many parents enjoy the opportunities to get together for a sundowner or accompany their children to a family P&F event.


Please ensure you have subscribed to the JSRACS Community Calendar to make sure you don’t miss anything.


Current parents will be able to access the  Community Calendar in  SEQTA.
