Parents Association

Recent winners of the prestigious ‘National Parents Council Innovation’ Award 2018.

The St. Pat’s Parents Association are a very committed group of parents. The following are just some examples of how we assist the school principal, staff and parents in practical ways;

  • We host speakers from the National Parents Council (NPC) on a range of subjects such as anti bullying and children’s mental health.
  • We provide refreshments on school open days and other occasions such as Grandparents Day and Graduation Night.
  • We’re actively involved in fundraising for the school.  In the past few years, we’ve hosted raffles, quiz nights and a bingo night.
  • We have a number of parents on our committee who volunteer weekly to run the school library.
  • In 2017, we set up our own Facebook page called “St. Pat’s PA”.

We’ve also spearheaded various initiatives within the school.

  • We assisted in the development of the Healthy Eating Policy.
  • We also helped introduce a Health and Wellness week to help make the boys more aware of wellness in their lives.
  • This year, we assisted in the rolling out of a six week Relaxation and Meditation Workshop for every class in the school.

If you’re interested in joining the committee, please contact any of us or send a private message to us on our Facebook page – St.Pat’s PA.
