Parents'  Association

Crest__1_-removebg-preview.png

Our Parents Association was officially formed in 1997-98. From fundraising for our new extensions in 2003, 2009 and 2020 and upgrading our playgrounds to the daily support of the teachers and a determination to ensure that the children want for nothing, all our parents have played a key role in the education of the children.

 

The Parents Association organise many fund raising events throughout the school year including:

 

  • Sponsored Walk in Jenkinstown

  • School Christmas Concert

  • Christmas Raffle

  • Table Quiz

 

The funds from these events allow for the provision of the following:

 

  • School Maintenance

  • Purchase of equipment and resources

  • Annual visit of Santa Claus and his elf!

  • Subsidising of swimming buses

  • School Tour 

 

Talks on topics such Transition to Secondary School and Internet Safety have been organised throughout the years. In 2019 the Parents Association organised a training course on the use of the defibrillator for all members of staff and interested parents

 

In 2017 our Parents Association purchased playground equipment to the value of €25,000

 

In 2020-21, our Parents Association, along with the Board of Management, ensured that all classrooms and support rooms were equipped with new Pro Touch Interactive Screens.

 

The current officers of our Parent’s Association are

 

Chairperson:      Lisa Power

  

Secretary:           Mary Louise Whelan

 

Treasurer:           Helen Manning

 

Assist Treas:       Ann Marie Kelly 

 

In our WSE report of 2019, the Board of Management regarded ‘the support of the Parents Association as a very significant strength of our school community’.
