Parents Association

 
 
 
 

Our Parents’ Association is integral to the success of Scoil Eoin Baiste. All parents and guardians of children attending Scoil Eoin Baiste are part of the Parents’ Association.

Parents' Association Committee

Within Scoil Eoin Baiste Parents’ Association, we have a Committee that plays an important role in supporting the partnership between the school and the children’s parents. The purpose of the Parents’ Association Committee (PAC) is to support the school by organising activities and social events for children and parents, and to fundraise where possible.

Committee members

Currently our Parents Association is made up of:

Chairperson: Dympna Caldwell

 

Vice-Chairperson: Susie Coyle

 

Secretary: Nadine Bassett

 

Treasurer: Shauna Mc Gettigan

It is comprised of a diverse group of people with many different skills who work well together in trying to achieve the very best for our school.

What the committee does

One of the main objectives for the PAC is to improve the overall experience for parents, guardians, children and teachers within our school community. This is achieved by assisting with the organising of events throughout the year. The PAC aims for a balance between social activities, fundraising events, and school engagement, meeting throughout the year to discuss and plan such events and activities.

Here are some examples of PAC led initiatives in Scoil Eoin Baiste in the past number of years:

  • Halloween Treats for all the children in the school
  • The organisation & running of an annual Christmas Craft Fair
  • The decorating of the school grounds for Christmas
  • The organisation of a special Christmas visitor each year
  • Organising and serving refreshments for all parents, grandparents and family members for events such as 

                      Grandparents Day & St. Brigid's Day Cross-Making

                      Christmas Carol Service

                      Raising of Active Flag, Digital Flag, Green Flag, Health-Promoting Flag
