10 October 2018: Parents' Council Annual General Meeting at 7.30pm
We will be holding the Parents' Council Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Wednesday October 10 at 7.30pm in the school. The following will be the agenda for the night:

  • Sign in and welcome
  • Update on last year's activities
  • Treasurers report
  • Upcoming events
  • Request for fundraising from school
  • Fundraising plans/ideas
  • Committee appointment 2018-2019
  • AOB

At every AGM the Parent Council committee of the previous year steps down and a new committee is elected. With this in mind we would like to receive nominations for the new committee – this will be done at the meeting from those present on the night. We would strongly encourage parent’s attendance at this event, as without a complete parent’s council we cannot continue to organise events/ fundraisers for the benefit of your children. Just to remind you of some of the events that the Parent’s Council organise: Halloween Party/ Disco, Christmas Hamper Raffle, Santa’s Visit, Trolley Raffle. Your support is greatly appreciated.
