New Officers of the Parent's Association were nominated and elected by the Parent's Association after the Annual General Meeting (AGM) held in St Joseph's College in October 2019.

The following positions were appointed:

Chairperson: Patricia Mc Guire

Secretary: Rachel Duggan

Treasurer: Judith Cheng

What do we do?

- The Parent Association (PA) can advise the Principal and Board of Management on policy issues and incidents that may require a review of school policy, e.g. Bullying, Safety, Homework, Enrolment, Behaviour problems etc.

- The Parent Association invite speakers to address the parents on issues which are topical or relevant such as John Lonergan’s talk on Irish Parenting and Dr Donal O’Shea talk on diet and obesity in Ireland.

- The PA fundraises for the school to purchase specific equipment for the school such as new library book and furniture, funding for the First Year Stay Awake Night and sports equipment.

The new Officers have a lot of plans for the coming school year with student focused events and fundraisers. This year the committee will look to identify some new ideas to provide the school with much needed support.

What’s new for 2019-2020?

So far this year the Parent’s Association have raised funds to purchase five new picnic benches for the school yard outside. This will help students take a break from their school and get outside to help with their wellbeing and manage their stress. The PA are currently fund raising to get another five benches.

In November the PA organised a very successful Disco Night for the First years and local students. These types of events are really good way for First Years to meet new people and settle into secondary life.

In January the PA held a movie night for the Second Year Students as a direct request from the students. The PA would like to thank the Student Council for helping on the night. The students enjoyed a lovely night of hot chocolate and treats with some spot prizes at the end of the night. Plans to have some Classic Movie Nights for all students are underway.

Last year a very successful clothing collection was organised and there are plans to run more to raise funds for the school.

In February we are hosting a Bingo Night in The Lord Lucan Pub in Finnstown on the 28th of February. You support would be very much appreciated, either through attending or donating a raffle prize.

Where can you find us?

The PA meets on the first Monday of every month in the Parish Centre in St Mary’s Church, Lucan from 7.30-8.30pm. New parents are always welcome to join the committee, organise events and support or help at fundraisers.

Thank you to all the students and parents who have supported the Parent’s Association. Your support is very much appreciated.
