Parents’ Association

 

The St. Brigid’s Parents’ Association (PA) would like to welcome you to our section of the school website. If you have any queries about our activities or if there is something further you would like to know please email us at stbrigidspa@gmail.com

The PA coordinates a range of after school activities and initiates projects which aim to promote the education, interests and well-being of the pupils – our children – of St. Brigid’s.  The PA has a good communication with parents, the school and its Board of Management.

The PA holds its Annual General Meeting during the first term of the school year.  To read the Chairman’s Report for 2015/16 click PA AGM Chairpersons Report 2016. The PA also meets regularly with the teachers throughout the year. A Newsletter is emailed to parents each term, ad hoc emails are sent to disperse important information or request the assistance of parents.  PA projects are developed in consultation with the school and Board of Management.

Please visit the PA webpage for information relating to:

  • After school activities for pupils
  • Events for parents, pupils or families
  • General consent
  • The communication process
  • Committee members

  • Important dates and reminders

Physical Education and Music classes are run during school hours for all classes. This is paid for out of the Parents’ Association subscriptions received each year.

Communication

The PA has established a parent contact list which enables efficient text/email communication with all parents. If your child/children join the school you will have the opportunity to register your telephone/email contact details on the list.  You will also have the opportunity to register your interest to volunteer for school events. Once registered, you will be notified of upcoming events and volunteer requirements and have the opportunity to be involved. This is an effective way to rapidly get to know parents, other children and integrate.
