Looking for Volunteers for the next School Year

The PA are currently looking for volunteers to join them for the coming school year. Many of our current members will be stepping down at the end of this school year having served 2 and 3 years on the PA.

Being on the PA gives parents a unique insight into the organisation and running of the school. Being involved also promotes positive links between home and school which directly benefit your child’s view of school and their school experience. Being on the PA involves meetings (1-2 per term), helping to organise events such as Santa Sunday and Sports Day as well as in school events such as Grandparent’s day, organising special treats with school staff e.g. Ice Cream Van and visiting guests such as the upcoming visit of “Scientist” Tony Baloney. The PA also forms a focus group when it comes to School Self Evaluation. The PA work closely with the Principal in terms of policy development and SSE. The PA are a crucial home school link.

If you would like to know more about the role and commitments involved please feel free to talk to the Principal or any member of the current PA. They will be happy to talk you about any questions you may have. The National Parent’s Council website also provides useful information and training for parents and Parent’s Associations across Ireland.
