Glasheen Girlsai??i?? School has a long established Parents Association made up of parents who want to help out by either lending a hand on special days, organizing special events for the children or fundraising. This Association is affiliated to the National Parents Council and has been a tremendous support to the school.
During this school year we hosted receptions for the pupils and parents of the Communion and Confirmation classes. We also made a presentation to the 6th class pupils at their graduation ceremony. Fundraising activities included bag-packing in local supermarkets and an Easter Fayre was held in the school hall. A very successful ai???drop and swopai??i?? was organised before the holidays, where parents availed of the opportunity to exchange uniforms for next year. Funds raised by the Association have contributed to the provision of extra sporting activities and school resources such as interactive whiteboards.
2014/2015 was a particularly busy time for us as a big fundraising event with renowned opera singer and past pupil Cara Oai??i?? SullivanAi??was organised inAi??DecemberAi??in the Lough Church. This event was a resounding success and was well supported by the school and local community.
For most people, the best thing about being a member of the Parents Association is the chance to meet other parents, to share experiences and to know that they are, like their daughters, part of the school family.
New members are not only welcome, but essential if the Association is to continue.
So if you are new to the school, or would just like to get involved, we would love to hear from you. Please contact the school (021-4542294) for details of our next meeting.
