Welcome to St Paul’s Parents Association
The Parents’ Association are involved in many aspects of school life and we are here for the benefit of you as parents and your son as he develops from a pre teen into an adult.
Some of the roles of the parents association
- Liaising with school management on expectations of parents/guardians as it relates to the education of their children
- Fundraising to help cover day to day costs
- Ongoing development within the College, to provide a range of facilities for your son,which are not funded by Department of Education.
- Two representatives from the parents association hold positions on the Board of Management
- Monthly meetings to keep in touch with the school and the staff and to discuss any issues relevant to the Parents Association
- Discuss issues that have been raised to the parents association with regard to their sons educational, pastoral and developmental needs
The Parents Association is involved in a number of fundraisers throughout the year , this enables us to support the school through replacement of equipment and sponsoring special days.
We welcome any new parent to the school and would encourage them to become involved with our association in order for both parents and son to get the best out of their time in Saint Paul’s
If you are available to help at any event please contact us at [email protected]
If you are a past pupil we would love to hear your experiences of the college and would welcome any involvement small or large.
We welcome any assistance that parents can offer the Association on either a formal or informal basis. The committee meets at 8pm on the first Wednesday of every month during the school year.
Our next meeting is Wednesday 4th October 2017 at 8pm
We would like to welcome new members especially parents of children starting out in first year. September is always a busy month for the parents association and even if you cannot commit to monthly meetings we always need help at many of the school events that we help out with. We try to keep a list of parents on hand that are available every now and again. It is important to us that our boys get the most out of school life and any help that we can give to nurture that is always appreciated.
On Monday 18th September 2017 the college held its open evening. This is an evening for incoming students and parents to check out the school and the facilities it can provide for your son. This years opening evening saw the launch of a new school prospectus which outlines the facilities on offer. It was a great success and a big thank you to all of the parents involved in handing out prospectus and answering questions and providing refreshments.
On Monday 25th September at 8pm the parents association will hold the AGM. We welcome all of the parent community. There will be a short meeting followed by a short talk from the Principal and guest speaker. This years Guest speaker is Mr. Trevor Higgins of Clouds Away Parent Coaching. Trevor will be speaking on the topic of Parent Coaching- what it is, why it’s of interest and how it works. Q & A session to follow.
