Scoil Phádraig is lucky to have a very active Parents Association. The committee is very involved in school activities and provides invaluable support in very practical ways. We are always looking for new members to join. The P.A. fulfill this commitment by working with the principal, teachers and all the partners in the School Community. It is led by a Steering Committee of 6 members, elected annually at the Annual General Meeting (AGM).
The purpose of the Parents’ Association is to provide a structure and means through which the Parents of children attending Scoil Phádraig can work together for the best possible education of their children. Scoil Phádraig believes that a partnership between parents/guardians and the school is of great benefit to the children. The Parents Association plays a very active part in helping the school to provide the best education and facilities possible to our pupils through:
- Promoting inclusion through social events
- Assisting at school events
We appreciate the many parents who volunteer to help around the school in a wide variety of tasks. These tasks include art and craft, gardening, ICT and a variety of sports and extra-curricular activities.
The role of the parent’s association is described in the Department of Education and Science’s Circular 24/91 – Parents as Partners in Education .
