St Patrick’s has a vibrant Parents Association which works to support the interests of our Children with the Principal, Staff and Board of Management.
Our main task is to adapt a programme of activities which will encourage the involvement of parents in supporting their children’s schooling and to build a link between Home and School.
We play an important role in celebrating special events for the Boys and their families, as they move through their school years.
Some activities are to raise funds for the Association to support its activities and for the many extras needed by the school. Through our monthly meetings we provide an opportunity for parents to share evolving news and information.
We would like to thank everybody for their generosity, their goodwill and sentiment shown towards the school. But the biggest thanks must go to the bag packing volunteers for giving up their time on both dates especially on the date so close to Christmas while we were experiencing artic freezing conditions.
Again, this money is not for us the Association, it will be used to provide new and improved recreational and educational facilities for the boys’ within the school.
