About our Parents Association
St Killian's Parents Association work to support the interests of the school in co-operation with the Board of Management.
It's main task is to adapt a programme of activities which will encourage the involvement of parents in supporting their children's schooling. This is done in co-operation with the staff as well as the Board of Management.
Some activities are to raise funds for the many extras needed by the school. Other activities provide an opportunity for parents to share good practice and good information. To do these tasks well, it is important that parents use the association to express their support on matters related to the school.
If you have any ideas or queries for the Parents Association, if you wish to get involved in activities organised throughout the year, or if you are interested in joining the Parents Association committee this year - please call the Chairperson.
The Parents Association committee are: Sinead Coules and Caroline Newell.
Contact details to follow. In the interim please contact the Parents Association through the school office.
You can also email the Parents Association at: PASt.Killians@gmail.com
New members are always welcome!
Welcome back to school everyone, and to the start of a new era for St Killian’s at our Mayfield school.
The children are already benefiting from the extra space, both inside and outside the school building.
We as a parent’s association would like to play a part in improving the school even further so we are asking for your help.
Already, we have had a day when families volunteered to help with work on the school pitch and we are hugely grateful for their efforts. We have now scheduled 2 further dates this term to help with specific projects.
On Saturday, October 20, we hope to brighten up the yards with some painting and stenciling. And on Saturday, November 17, we will be redecorating the school's parents/meeting room. On both days, we will be looking for volunteers from 10am to 1pm and youngsters are welcome to pitch in, if accompanied by a parent.
If you can help, please fill in the attached slip and return it to school. We will contact you to confirm closer to the date.
And we have one further appeal. Christmas is just around the corner and we will again be holding our annual raffle. We will begin accepting donations of prizes and hamper baskets after mid-term so please keep that in mind.
Finally, our monthly coffee mornings will resume on Tuesday, October 23, at 11am at the Clayton Silversprings Hotel. We'd love if you could join us for a very informal cuppa and chat then.
