The school has a very active Parents’ Association who promote the educational interests of the children and help with fundraising for the school.
We acknowledge the role of parents as partners in education. Parents are most welcome in the school and encouraged to keep in regular contact with the teachers. Should you wish to meet the Principal or your child’s teacher please make an appointment by phoning the school secretary. In the interest of safety and security all parents/visitors must call to the office on entering the school.
Parent/Teacher meetings are held annually where parents have an opportunity to have a one to one meeting with their child’s teacher. We will also supply you with an annual written report of your child’s progress. The homework journal is also a very effective means of communication between parent and teacher. Please check and sign regularly. It is sufficient to write an absence not in the homework journal.
The Principal will endeavour to keep parents informed of all school activities, school calendar etc. by the newsletter, through this website and by text (when necessary).
In order to keep the cost of school books to a minimum there is a book rental scheme in the school. It is run by a group of dedicated parents who fundraise and look after the purchase and distribution of the books. The school calendar is sold every year to raise funds for the book rental scheme.
The National Parents Council (NCP) for Primary Schools is the representative organisation for parents of children attending primary school. They offer Training and Courses as well as a helpline for any questions you may have (01) 887 4477.
