Glenmore National School Parents' Association

Glenmore NS Parents' Association

Hello Everyone!

As we begin a new school year we would like to extend our welcome to all parents and guardians, new and old.

We realise that only a small number of parents are aware of who we are, what we do, what our role is and how important it is for our children that the school can count on parental support and involvement. We would like to raise awareness about Glenmore Parents Association who support our children and school but most of all we would like you to get to know us.

Many of you know our faces from last year but for any of our new parents this is who we are:

Chairperson: Pam Doyle Committee Members: Gemma Doherty; Anita Croarkin;

Secretary: Deirdre Kinsella Claire Mullaly; Karen Byrne;

Treasurer: Anne Hanrahan Mary Mackey.

We are always looking for new members to join our team and would like to extend our invitation to all parents and guardians to join us for our AGM in the school on Tuesday 5th October at 8:15pm. Please come along and meet us all.

In case you are wondering what we do, the official role of the Parents Association is to work with the principal, staff and Board of Management to build effective co-operation and partnership between home and school.

The main focus of the Glenmore Parents Association to date has been fundraising. Last year we were once again restricted by covid 19 but we still managed the following events:

• Christmas raffle which raised €905.70

• Sponsored Walk which raised €1059.50

We are continuously working on effective ways of raising awareness of our school in our local community.

Committee members also organised refreshments for various events including the 6th class graduation, school sports day and Easter treats.

We are always busy helping Ms. Kelly and all our teachers to make our school as welcoming and inclusive for all on a daily basis.

Following a meeting with Ms. Kelly, this year we plan to use funds raised to:

• Purchase Science equipment and resources to be used at all levels within the school.

• Subsidise a computer literacy programme for 1st – 6th Class which is a wonderful initiative that we are delighted to be part of as it will hugely benefit our children.

• Subsidise swimming lessons for children from 3rd – 6th class to lower costs for parents.

• Subsidise 6th class graduation costs

• Funding for miscellaneous resources for the Infant room.

We look forward to another successful year ahead for Glenmore National school and appreciate all your support to date. 

Please save the date October 5th for our AGM!!
