Parents Association

Join us on Tuesday 3rd October for our Parent’s Association A.G.M.

We would love to see some new members and hope some of you will volunteer to be a liaison person for a class (disseminating info via Whatsapp).

We look forward to welcoming you.

St. Mary’s Parents’ Association is a voluntary group affiliated to the National Parents’ Council (Primary).

The Parent Association (P.A.) is the structure through which parents/guardians in a school can work together for the best possible education for their children.

Through close co-operation with the teaching staff and the Board Of Management, the P.A. contributes hugely to the life of the school. We cherish the positive relations between our parents and the staff.

The Education Act, 1998 sets down the role of the parent association.

Educational research on the involvement of parents in schools shows that children achieve higher levels when parents and teachers work together.

St. Mary’s N.S. are extremely lucky to have such an enthusiastic and dedicated Parents Association.  Their commitment to fundraising and supporting the school is remarkable.

Many of the extra resources and activities the school have are thanks to the organisation and generosity of the members of the P.A. along with you, the parents and families of the children in the school.

We would love to see more parents getting involved in the P.A. to share their skills, talents and experience.  More hands make light work!!

The current St. Mary’s Parents Association comprises:

Chairperson: Andra Rooney, Secretary: Caoimhe Giblin, Treasurer: Tara Corcoran, Committee Members: Anne Lawless, Elizabeth O’Reilly, Lisa Mulvey, Lisa O’ Kane…….

Monies raised by the P.A. over the last few years has been used to fund:

  • Chromesbooks
  • Swings
  • Puppet Shows
  • Activity transport
  • Outdoor games
  • Outdoor classroom seating

Going forward we would love to install an all weather track around the playing field which could be used for athletics and walking all year round.
