New Parent's Association Committee, October 2018

Who are we? St Joseph’s College Parents Association (PA), is a voluntary group of parents of students in the school, who support the school during the year. New parents are always very welcome to join.

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 on the 8th of October.

The following positions were appointed:

Chairperson: Patricia Mc Guire

Secretary : Mary Kinsella

Treasurer: Judith Cheng

What do we do?

- The Parent Association 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 PA organise car boot sales the second Sunday of each month from March to September, to raise funds for the school. They are finished now for the winter so come on down to have a look, pick up a bargain or maybe do a clear out at home.

- 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 chairs, graduation ceremony student podium 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 2018?

This year on October 25th, the PA are organising a Careers Talk Night for students of the school and surrounding schools. Speakers have been invited to give a talk on their career path to offer an insight in the job and work area.

A cookery demonstration is being organised so keep a look out for more details to follow.

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

Where can you find us?

The PA meets on the first Monday of every month in the Parish Center 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.
