James Ruse Agricultural High School Parents & Citizens Association

The James Ruse Agricultural High School Parents and Citizens Association (JRAHS P&C) plays an integral role in the James Ruse Agricultural High School community. We aim to bring parents, staff, students and citizens together to benefit the interests of the students and the school.

Through the Annual Contribution and various activities such as Food Days and the Annual Raffle, P&C raises valuable funds that are donated to the school to improve its facilities, purchase new equipment and resources, and support identified projects.

P&C meetings are held twice each term on the Tuesday of Week 3 and Week 8 at 6:30pm. All parents and carers are welcomed to attend these meetings, regardless of whether you are a P&C member or not.

We encourage all parents, carers and guardians of students enrolled at the school, as well as citizens, employees and school staff to become members of the P&C. The P&C uses a mobile APP, Qkr (pronounced as Quicker), for collecting the $5 membership fee and member contact details. Please follow the Parent Guide for Qkr to register and pay. Thank you for becoming a member of the P&C Association.

Please feel free to contact us on jamesrusepandc@gmail.com should you have any questions, ideas or issues you wish to raise, or would like to contribute to or volunteer at any of our P&C events.
