Our Parents' Association AGM will be online, on Monday 11th October 2021 @ 7.30 p.m.. Please email glasheenboysparents@gmail.com to request the link for the meeting, which will be sent out on Monday next.

Two fundraisers are planned. Firstly, there will be a dress up day / jersey day on Friday 22nd October. P.A. invites parents to send in €2 per child (or whatever you would like) to support PA activities, as fundraising has not been possible. Secondly, it's hoped to give each child the opportunity of designing his own Christmas Card, which parents can then order, online, should you wish to.
