The Parent’s Association AGM for 2017 will take place on Thursday, October 19th, at 8.00pm and we always encourage new members. Below you will find information on some of the activities we are involved in. Being a member of the PA is a great way to meet other parents and to learn more about your child’s school.
The Parent’s Association of Carrig N.S. works with the Principal, Staff and Board of Management and is vital in ensuring good communication and effective partnership between these groups and parents.
The committee is involved in many different activities which enhance the school experience for our pupils and their parents. The PA organises activities for the children both inside and outside of school hours, e.g. swimming lessons, and hosts at important school events such as Communion and Confirmation.
Talks for parents and events such as the uniform swap shop are regularly arranged. The P.A. is also involved in fundraising events for school improvements, such as the funding for the new astro-turf, and in formulating and ratifying school policies.
The Parent’s Association of Carrig National School is affiliated with the National Parent’s Council (Primary) and is covered by their insurance. Please click the link below to visit the NPC website where there is information on conferences, talks and many topics which will be of interest to parents:
