Parents Association

Scoil Naomh Pádraig has a very active Parents Association. All parents in the school are members of the Association, but we have a committee of about 15 who are very involved. By arranging a variety of events for both adults and children, we try to keep the fun in fundraising. The committee meets once a month on the first Tuesday at 8.30 Buglers pub. The meetings last about an hour and involve a lot of chat! It’s a great way for parents to meet other parents, and we also have two ‘Nights Out’ at Christmas and the end of the school year.

Some of our regular events include the Halloween Cake Sale, the Pub Quiz (for the parents!), the Valentines Ball (for the children!) and we use our contacts in the North Pole to make sure Santa makes a flying visit to the school just before Christmas. We also have ongoing fundraising projects such as ‘Pennies for Projects’ – collecting copper coins, with one count a year around February – and our 350 Draw – a monthly draw with prizes of €200, €100 and €50. Last year we also had a book sale, bag packing in Tesco & a Sponsored walk. We also had a fantastic fun day with the boys school!

The main role of the Parents Association is to fund-raise for the school. All monies raised are used in the school and some of the things we have paid for in the past year include, new microphones for the sound system, painted the whole school, resurfaced one of the playgrounds, made a memorable DVD of the Sam Maguire. We also organise a class calendar and a colour newsletter.

Our other role is one of consultation with the Principal and Board of Management on various issues, for example reviewing school policies on behalf of the parents or choosing the new tracksuits for the school!

If you would like to take a more active role, we always love to welcome new members – you can get as involved as you like – be on the committee, volunteer to help at our events, donate a prize, or just sign up to our draw (see link for forms). All participation is very welcome, and your child will benefit.
