Dear Parents,

The Parents Association are holding their A.G.M. on Thursday 3rd October at 7:45p.m.  We will go through the fundraising events for the year, what we raised and how the money has been spent.  We would also welcome any ideas from parents re fundraising events for the future. We would also welcome your ideas on how some of the money may be spent in the future and any other issues which you feel we could improve on.   Our aim is to continue to work with the school staff to implement new positive ideas from the parents for the welfare of their children.  The support for the Parents Association this year has been fantastic and the students in the school will and have already benefited from your support and ideas.

We will continue to work hard to support the school but we do need the parents to keep supporting us.

Thanks again for your support and we hope to see you on Thursday evening.


The Parents Association Committee.
