March Update


A meeting was held on 8th March 2018. Below are some of the main points:

  • The committee are now affiliated with the National Parents Council.
  • The committee are going to set up a new Facebook Page run by the Parents Association. A member of staff from the school will also link in with the page to keep information from the school as up to date as possible. A competition will be run in the school to come up with the name for the page as well as designing a cover picture. Closing date for the competition is Friday 16th March.
  • St Patrick's Day Parade - The Parents Association will march with some of the children in the Parade. The theme is to simply wear green!
  • The social evening has been postponed for now.
  • Communion/Confirmation - It was suggested that we could have a meet up/coffee morning after one of the Communion preparation masses. This will be discussed further at the next meeting.
  • Fundraising - Within the next year it was suggested that a major fundraising event such as Abbeyleix's got Talent or Lip sync could be held.
  • FIT Gym were looking for feedback as to whether there would be interest in an Easter camp in the school targeting core skills and basic movements. All in attendance on the night were in agreement with the idea.
  • Pumpkin Patch - The Tidy Town Committee would like to arrange a day for the children to gather in the alotments near the South School to plant some pumpkin seeds. There would then be a pumpkin pick day when harvested in Autumn. More details to follow.


Next meeting will be held on Wednesday 11th April @ 8pm.
