Ringaskiddy Lower Harbour N.S. Parent Association is made up of parents/guardians of the pupils in the school and is run on a voluntary basis. The Association is affiliated to the National Parents Council (Primary) through which parents’ views and concerns are expressed directly to the education authorities. The association aims to work in conjunction with the school to represent the views and interests of all the parents & children. The Association is in regular contact with the principal in relation to various activities.
The current committee members are as follows:
Angela Gray Chairperson
Lisa Sisk Secretary
Nikki O’Neill Treasurer
Other Committee members: Trica Laffan, Leah Gargan, Orla McNamee, Joanne O’Sullivan, Sarah Gubbins, Louise O’Rahilly, Joanne Coughlin.
The Association meets regularly, all parents are welcome to attend open meetings and AGM. Parents are notified of these meetings through the school text service.
We have a range on fundraising activities through the school year. These help in supporting school activities such as music teacher, buses for school outings, school communion party, school concert and if the school request things such as painting or sports balls we help as best we can.
It is a tough time at the moment for pupils, teachers and parents. The National parents council is on Facebook, Twitter and they have a web page www.npc.ie. Parents might find it a bit of a support through these times. Joe Wicks the body coach does a fun work out session for kids live at 9am on YouTube which you can get anytime also. https://youtu.be/QvWzWqLk8iQ.
We would like to wish all the pupils well and hope they are enjoying their extra time at home. Hopefully we will see the communion and conformations go ahead over the summer. Best of luck to the 6th class going into secondary school in September.
