Parents Association

Our Parent Association is the structure through which our parents/guardians  work together for the best possible education for their children.

It is a support for parents in the school.  Each class has a parent representative who can be contacted via WhatsApp.  

Our Parent Association often invites speakers to address the parents on issues which are topical or relevant, such as Accord.

They organise the after-Communion gathering in the Parish Hall, cake sales, pre-loved uniform sales, Bags2School, 6th Class Farewell Hoodies, Christmas Card fundraisers to name but a few.  

The Parent Association is not a forum for complaint against either an individual teacher or parent. The Complaints Procedure is the mechanism for this.

The Parent Association alternates their meeting between ‘in person’ gatherings in the school and virtually via online meetings.

Bags2School Fundraiser

Our busy PA braved the cold at the end of April to collect lots of bags of pre-loved clothes and toys.

They started at 8.00am gathering bags and by 11.00am, the entrance to the Parish Hall was jammed!

645.5 Kg of clothes/shoes/toys were collected.  This raised €258.20 for our school, which will go a long way towards paying for the school’s texting service and their dance specialism, provided by Alan of DizzyFootwork.

Thank you to everyone who donated.
