Parents Association

Purpose

The purpose of the Parents’ Association (PA) is to provide a structure through which the parents and guardians of pupils of Blennerville National School (NS) can work together for the best possible education for their children.

Aims and Objectives

The aims and objectives of the Parents’ Association of Blennerville NS are as follows:
  • 1.
    To help all parents feel they have a part to play in the school and a contribution in helping to make their child's years in the school a positive time in their life.
  • 2.
    To represent the interests and views of parents of children attending the school.
  • 3.
    To inform parents of developments in Education and in Blennerville NS
  • 4.
    To foster cooperation and promote good relationships between parents and the Principal, Teachers and Board of Management.
  • 5.
    To assist with extra-curricular activities.
  • 6.
    To help with the provision of extra equipment and teaching aids through fundraising events.

What Happens?

At the beginning of each academic year the new PA committee is selected at the AGM of the PA. This is advertised through the text system and School notice-board. Look out for this notification and come if possible. New parents are actively encouraged to join the committee. All parents are welcome to contribute to discussions at the AGM, assist with events and participate in the committee.

From an individual parent’s perspective, you get to know a lot of people through the PA, and get to know more teachers than those directly involved with your children. Being a member is not just enjoyable, it gives you a reassurance and confidence in the School that is educating your child. By active participation in school activities and events we are sending an important message to the children, teachers and school management that we value the education our children receive. People are not always available to help out for every event, so it helps if we have a pool of names to call on (which is actually not very often!).

Contact Us

Feel free to contact us through the school by contacting the Principal, School Secretary Noreen or Nora Corridon (current chairperson).

If you are interested in joining the Parents Association please contact the office and leave your name and contact details or any member of the association we are always looking for new members.

In October 2019 we are undertaking a major fundraiser for the school called The Chaser, based on the ITV TV show - ‘The Chase’. If you can help in any way with this, please ring the school and let us know, thank you.
