Committee Members - Sabaa Katib Khan, Amtal Qudas, Doris Davies, Naila Korumtaliee, Mahabat Alsaab & Lema Hamed.
So far for this school year we have run the Toy & Treat sale which was a very successful fundraiser. We also ran a clothes collection. We will be running more fundraisers before the school year is out. We are not all about fundraising & have collectively and individually done lots of other work for e.g. organising art classes & tin whistle for the school and lego club for Senior Infants. We offered the 24 hour insurance policy option for a small fee to all children. We renewed our National Parents Council membership which allows access to different focus groups & information for parents. Our treasurer Marta also runs the scholastic book club for the school. We organised an evening meeting for parents who cannot attend daytime meetings and had a guest speaker giving an anti bullying talk on the night. We served tea, coffee and biscuits to you all at our wonderful Winter Concert.
During this term we hope to organise the class photos and run a raffle of some sort for the children, among other things. There will be more information on here as soon as details are confirmed.
We would like to thank you all for your continued support.
