Welcome to the Parents' Page of Gaelscoil Cholaiste Mhuire’s Website. We are delighted to have a very active Parents Council at our school. The purpose of this page is to keep you all up to date on the initiatives that the Parents’ Council is involved with. The Parents Council hopes to assist your children's school and to enhance our children's educational experience. We aim to help add little extras and attempt to fill in some of the gaps that educational funding doesn't reach in Gaelscoil Cholaiste Mhuire. We are always seeking additional members, so please come along to our meetings. We need your knowledge, help and experience. While fundraising is vitally important we all know that money is tight and we would love if some of you would help the school in practical ways. This assistance can be provided by all parents in a number of different ways, for example, by volunteering to assist with school events or by running/supporting school fundraising activities. We would be happy to see a few new faces or even just to get an offer to help out at some of the events during the year. Don’t be shy, it is your school too!
Our Objective To assist the school management and teachers in the education and welfare of our children. The Parents Council represent parents in formulating school policy with the Board of Management, Principal & Staff and welcome any feedback or suggestions from parents.
Our Action Plan consists of the following three key areas:-
Parental Involvement – To create opportunities for parents and staff to work together on common tasks and develop positive relationships for the good of our children. We strive to ensure that parents’ viewpoints are represented in policies and systems drawn up by the school. To work on behalf of the parent body to identify areas for development and improvement in the school and promote the work of the school.
Communication– To make sure that all parents are advised of any key issues that affect our children and enable all parents to express their views and wishes in a range of different ways that make it possible for everyone to contribute in a way that suite them best.
Fundraising – Fundraising events are very important in helping to provide the best possible school life for our children. The Parents' Council is responsible for organising various activities and social events throughout the year.
