The Parents Association Committee would like to welcome all the girls and their families back to school! We look forward to planning lots of events over the coming year. We were delighted to be able to host our teas and tissues event on the first day of school and to meet some of the junior infants’ parents. We hope all the girls are settling well into school.
In 2019, the Parents Association in consultation with the school, agreed to fundraise sufficient funds to resurface the junior yard. We held an Easter Fair in April 2019 and raised an incredible €15,000. We had planned to raise further funds for the yard in 2020 but unfortunately the pandemic delayed our plans.
We are delighted to announce that we can now continue our efforts to resurface the yard. We really hope we can raise sufficient funds that would enable the yard to be resurfaced in Summer 2023!
On 30th September, we will be running a School Marathon Relay (http://www.schoolmarathonrelay.ie/) whereby all the girls in the school will participate in a relay and will cover the distance of a marathon by the end of the day. We hope it will be a fun day for all the girls!
The girls will be bringing home sponsorship cards soon. Sponsorship can be returned to the school as cash or via our GoFundMe page (https://gofund.me/34ca705d)
We would really appreciate your support with this project!

Board of Management Report – October 2018
Many thanks to all the parents who attended the Annual General Meeting of our Parents Association on Wednesday the 26th of September 2018. For those of you who were not able to attend this is a short note of what was discussed.
The Chairperson ended the evening by thanking everyone for attending and asking that the next time they attend if they could please try and bring at least one more parent with them and to spread the word that the AGM is worth attending so parents can have their say.
