Home & School
We encourage you to join our local Home and School
Association. Home and School is a vital part of the volunteer
organization in both elementary and high schools. The
Québec Federation of Home and School Associations is
recognized by the Ministry of Sports, Leisure and Education as
the watchdog and only independent voice of English parents in
Our local Home and School Association offers individual family memberships at a cost of $19.00 for the year. If you are already a Home and School member at another school, you may pay $2.00 to become an associate member at John Rennie. A family membership includes membership in the provincial association and the national association (Canadian Home and School Federation; every province has a provincial association). Membership entitles you to vote at all meetings and includes the Federation’s newspaper, which is mailed directly to you, and liability insurance coverage for the member.
JRHS Home and School volunteers work closely with the school's Parent Participation Organization, providing assistance where needed in the school. We also participate in fundraising activities, proceeds of which go towards enhancing the students’ environment and to grant awards to deserving students at the end of the year.
