Parents' Council News

As a parent you will receive regular notices from the Parent's Council to inform you of any relevant information. Please find the news articles of the 2017-2018 school year below.

6 December 2017: Return Raffle Cards and Donations by 18 December
Your child will have a Raffle Card in their bag today. Raffle prizes include hampers, vouchers and other items. We would really appreciate if you could sell as many lines as possible and return to the school by 18th December 2017. If you need additional card(s), please do not hesitate to contact us! This year, we have added additional lines on the Raffle Card, as this will be our only in-house fundraiser. You will note that the Split-the-Pot has not been running, so we would appreciate your support on this one event.

In order to create the hampers and prizes, we also need donations of non-perishable items also by December 18th. In other years, we have received a great mix of items including the following: Vouchers; - Small craft items; - Tinned foods; - Sweets; - Biscuits; - Dry packed foods e.g. pasta, noodles; - Drinks. Please do not send in any frozen foods, fresh fruit/ meat items or perishable items. Thank you for all your previous generous donations and we wish you and yours a very Happy Christmas!

6 December 2017: New Chairperson Parents' Council
We are delighted to inform you that Alison Murphy will be our new Chairperson going forward. We wish to thank Catherine O’Brien for fulfilling and exceeding in this role over the last number of years.

27 November 2017: Meeting Christmas Activities
It’s that time of year again! We will be holding a meeting to organise the annual Christmas Raffle and a few other festive items. The meeting will be on Monday 27th November from 7.30pm-8.30p.m. in the school. We would really appreciate some volunteers around the Christmas events for your children. Hope to see you there!

24 October 2017: Halloween Party on 27 October from 5 to 7pm
The Parents' Council would like to invite all children, and parents, of Clonegal NS to the Halloween Party in Ben Mulhall Complex in Clonegal for some freaky fun and ghoulish games!! It is required that each family must have an adult present in the hall for the duration of the party. Unaccompanied children will not be allowed to enter.

We are looking for help to set up for the event, beginning from 3pm. We would appreciate it if you would contact Eliz 087 7391409, or e-mail clonegalparents@gmail.com. Please contact a member of the Parents' Council (not the school) if you have any questions.

24 October 2017: New chairperson Parents' Council Needed
The Parent's Council is seeking nominations for the position of the chairperson. Please forward your nominations by 5pm on Friday 24th November. It is vital that the person being nominated is aware of their name being put forward. You can also self nominate if you wish. If you want further information on what this role entails, please contact clonegalparents@gmail.com.

18 October 2017: Parents Council AGM at 7.30pm
The following will be on the agenda for the night:

  • Chairperson introduction
  • Review of Previous AGM Minutes
  • Update on the activities carried out by the Parents Council over the last school year
  • Review of the financial activity
  • Election of a new committee
  • Upcoming Event: Halloween

At every AGM the Parents Council committee for 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. Catherine O’ Brien will be stepping down as Chairperson, after many years of doing a wonderful job. 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, and the trolley raffle. Your support is greatly appreciated.

26 September 2017: Parents' Council Meeting at 7.30pm
Thank you to those of you who are involved with the Parents Council. The Parents Council do tremendous work for the school and for your children. If you are already involved with the Parents Council, your involvement is greatly appreciated. If you are not involved, perhaps you would become involved this year. In particular, we would like to encourage parents from the Junior end of the school to become involved. Without new members it is very difficult to organize events and everything done by the Parents Council is for the benefit of your children. It also provides an opportunity for you to become involved in the school community.

June 2017: A Special Note of Thanks and Overview of Activities
We would like to thank you all for the support which you have given the Parents Council over the school year. We also wish to thank Mrs. Cosgrave, Mrs. O’Rourke and the staff for their continued assistance and support. And the Board of Management for their ongoing support. Just to remember that all parents give their time voluntarily for the benefit of your children so we really do appreciate all the time that parents have provided throughout the year. We wish Mrs. Cosgrave a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing her in September.
