The Coláiste Éinde Parents’ Association is made up of all parents/guardians of pupils attending the school, and is associated with the National Post Primary Parents Council.

The constitution of the Parents’ Association was revised and approved at the AGM in September 2013. (link to the document)

The aims of the association include:

a)            The advancement of the moral, mental, physical, social and cultural well being of the students of Coláiste Éinde and of    the Community generally

b)            The fostering of good relations between parents, teachers, students and the school authorities.

c)            To be a means of parents getting together, to get to know each other and to give support to the school.

d)            Acting as an advisory body, representing the views of parents on school policies and activities.

e)            The election of parents’ nominees to the Board of Management.

 

The annual general meeting takes place in September/October each year.

The affairs of the association are administered by a Committee, consisting of no more than 12 parents, elected each year at the AGM. The committee meets at least 4 times during the school year.

Activities and Events 2013-2014

In the school year 2013-2014, the committee has organised a number of events and fund raisers.

In February 2014, the Coláiste Éinde Parents’ Association, in collaboration with the Students’ Council, ran a raffle in the school to raise funds for Connemara girl Katie O’Halloran to help her obtain Bebionic prosthetic arms. The raffle raised €300.

A Christmas Floral Demonstration was held on Tuesday December 12th at the Ardilaun Hotel. This well supported event proved to be a very successful fundraiser for the school.

A Table Quiz was held on Monday November 11th at the Ardilaun Hotel. All parents, pupils and teachers were invited to participate. On the night, attendance surpassed all expectations and the committee is particularly grateful to the hotel for accommodating us. The Parents’ Association expressed their thanks to the school for providing homework and canteen vouchers as prizes. The event raised €435.66.
