Parents Association 2015/2016

Parents Association

 

Ever stopped to think what the (“PA”) Parents Association is and what exactly it is we do?

Well, here it goes

The PA committee is a coordinating/organising body for all the parents in the school.

All parents and guardians are automatically members of our Parent’s Association. We have regular meetings and coffee mornings.

We liaise on your behalf with the school body and Board of Management.

We support and help run events like Multi-Culture Cuisine night, Valetine Cake Sale and Summerhill Craft & Food Fair.

We liaise with the NPC and with other local school PTA’s where relevant.

We work with the teachers to help provide additional school and education materials as required – for example in 2015 we funded the purchase of a Defibrillator. We are the only school in the County to have one.

Like you, we are parents who want to ensure our children have the most positive school experience possible.

Please feel free to contact us at PTA@petns.ie or leave a message for us in the Parents Association box in front of Receiption.
