Dear Parent/Guardian,

We wish to extend a warm welcome to you and your child/children.  This is just a note to let you know about the Parents Association here in Scoil Mhuire.

The Parents association is a voluntary group made up of parents/guardians.  The main function of the Parents Association is fundraising, helping with school events and providing a vital link between the parents and the school.

Fundraising: Examples of some of the fundraising events we have undertaken in the past are cake sales, Summer fair, raffles etc.  All monies raised from these events go directly to benefit the children to purchase additional necessary educational resources that are not funded by the Department of Education.

Helping with School Events: We help with the teas & refreshments after certain events, 1st Holy Communion & Grandparent’s Day, we also help with the Christmas fair & arrange a pizza party for 6th Class.

Providing a Vital Link between Parents and the School:  We meet regularly to exchange ideas & to keep everyone informed of upcoming events.

We would actively encourage parents/guardians to become involved with the Parents Association.  Being a member gives you a valuable opportunity to be part of your child’s school life and experience their school involvement at first hand.  Without the work of the Parents Association, it wouldn’t be possible for the school to provide the extra resources for the children.

You will be notified in the first term about our AGM, where we hope to meet as many of you as possible.
