UPDATES FROM PARENTS’ ASSOCIATION:
Parent Volunteers – (IMPORTANT) – All parents are asked to consider helping out at even one Parents’ Association event, during the school year, as this means that everyone can become involved, yet there is not a burden on the same small number of people. Please consider this, as it is also a wonderful way of being involved in your son’s school and it is hugely appreciated by the school. Please give your name into the school office or email the Parents’ Association. Thank You.

In Glasheen, we are extremely fortunate to have a very active Parents’ Association. At the beginning of each school year, the P.A. holds an Annual General Meeting (A.G.M.), at which a Chairperson, Secretary, Treasurer and Committee is selected.
During the year, there are monthly meetings, at which parents organise events. A parent does not need to be a member of the committee to attend the meetings, once she or he is a parent in the school.
The Chairperson and committee members are in regular contact with the school principal and other members of staff, as they all work together, for the benefit of the pupils and the school.
Many of the events involve fun activities for the pupils, while there are also opportunities for parents to meet up, in a social setting.
EVENTS DURING THE YEAR
Term 1: AGM, Bag Packing, Bingo Night, Jersey Day, Movie Night, Christmas Cards, Santa’s Visit.
Term 2: Unused/unwanted Christmas Gifts, Grandparents’ Day, Confirmation Blazer Fitting, Easter Egg Hunt, Jersey Day.
Term 3: Quiz Night, Communion & Confirmation Blazers, Communion & Confirmation Family Receptions, Gold Rush, Open Day, Graduation Day.
