The Parents' Association includes all the parents in the school. A small group of parent volunteers operates as an organising committee and works on behalf of the PA. We contribute to school life in the following ways:
We organise all the after-school activities. The money received goes towards paying the various talented teaching and coaching staff, as well as covering other general costs incurred from the activities.
We organise fundraisers at various points in the year – some big, some small. All funds raised go directly to the school.
We meet throughout the year to manage our regular annual commitments (eg. Xmas Fair), but also to consider how we might contribute to the school and wider community in new and different ways.
All ideas and contributions are always extremely valued whether you want to help out at a particular event, join the committee, or have skills that you think would be of benefit to us. If you are new to the school, the PA is a great way of getting involved – and surprisingly good fun.

Dear All. The Winter Fair is almost upon us. Thank-you to everyone who has signed up so far but there are a LOT of empty slots, especially for the day itself. We really must get these filled
Just a reminder that donations can be brought to the school from Tuesday - Friday this week. Please do so - without these we can't do anything!
We sell a lot of cakes so please can people help by:
Supplying (baking, blagging or buying) cakes, bakes, biscuits, buns, cookies etc.
Just an update on a few things
We are happy to announce the return of the Hairdressing section of the Winter Fair. Mark Doherty of Sitstil (www.sitstil.ie) will be kindly providing his considerable skills again and we will be adding a series of slots for this to the sign-up sheet. At €50, it's a bargain
The Dental check continues this year with Christopher Hogg and Kirsten Fitzgerald giving the kids a once-over and some hygiene tips. At €5 this is also tremendous value
