Parents'  Association


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’.
