This in from The Pamela Dungan who sez:
the current Ballyboughal NS Parents Association is running since October 2015. Every single parent of a child enrolled in Ballyboughal NS is a member of the Parents Association but a small number of parents are elected to form the PA Committee.
The current chairperson is Sarah Maxwell & the secretary is (me) Pamela Dungan. We are basically there to make the school an extra fun & happy place to be! We put a lot of time into organising events such as the Christmas Fair, Easter Hunts, Communion & Confirmation After Parties, Fundraising Events.
We fundraise to raise money for the school e.g. updating computer equipment, new iPads, extra curricular activities, Christmas pantomimes, travel expenses to events & lots more!
We are the structure through which parents in the school can work together for the best education for all children. We work with our principal, Maeve, throughout the school year & we hold meetings with Maeve on a monthly basis, every parent is very welcome to come along to our meetings.
We would love every parent in Ballyboughal to like our Ballyboughal Parents Association Facebook page & support us in every way possible! We put our heart & soul into the PA but can only continue to do what we do for the students with the support of all parents in our lovely community.
Thanks so much, Pam
