The present Parents’ Association was formed early 2009 and our first event was a “Make Yourself Amazing” fashion night in March 2009.
Our aim is twofold,to raise much needed additional funds for the school while bringing parents together in a social setting,building up a community atmosphere and ultimately having fun for parents and children alike.
Since 2009 we have established a number of events which have now become a tradition at the school. We held our fourth “Summer Fair” in June 2014 and have just recently held our fifth “Fancy Dress Halloween Party” for P4-P7.
We have also staged quiz nights,held bagpacks,organised career afternoons for P7,held adult Irish dancing classes,assisted with a “Jigs and Reels”night and have just recently organised a very successful Fashion Show.
We have been delighted over the years to provide some very worthwhile puchases for the school.
We have provided an interactive whiteboard,seven i-pads,a new lighting system for the assembly hall and an updated sound system,monies for new P1/P2 reading books,a donation to school for percussion instruments,contributions to the schools text messaging service and many more smaller purchases throughout the last five years.
New members are always very welcome to join the committee and we will always advertise the dates of our meetings in the “Monday Note.”
