Welcome to our community

Welcome to all new and returning families at AISJ. 

You are in the right place at the right time, and are surrounded by an amazing international community here at AISJ.  Whether you are brand new to SA or have been here for years, please know that we are all one supportive community that is here for each other. 

The Johannesburg PA works with the school community to organize and sponsor social events and activities to help parents, students, and the entire campus to continue to build a strong supportive community. 

We are a self-funding organization and use finances we raise to enhance the experience of AISJ students, as well as less privileged in our local community through the school's service learning projects.

Parents are automatically members of the Johannesburg PA while their child is a student at the Johannesburg Campus. 

(Please check the Divisional AISJ portals for coffees regarding your grade or school)



Mistletoe Marketplace is our fabulous Christmas Market with over 50 craft and food vendors.  A GREAT opportunity to shop before going home for the holidays as well as try sweets from our PA sponsored bake sale. 

Family Fun Day is not to miss. It is an all-day family event with yummy food, rides for the kids AND our International Basket Auction!! We will ensure that there is something for everyone. It is also our main fund-raiser of the year.

We invite you to attend our monthly PA meetings to share ideas, receive information from AISJ, and learn how to become more involved in the AISJ Johannesburg community.

The Johannesburg PA was designed to be a wonderful part of our school and the PA officers are proud to represent you. Please do not hesitate to contact any of us on the PA board with any questions you might have, we are here to help.

Warmest Regards!

Your AISJ Parents Association
