Parents’ Association Submission
As the year draws to a close we would like to take this opportunity to express how grateful we are to Ms Pauline Egan and all the staff of Coláiste Eoin not only for the welcome they extend to the Parents’ Association but also for their help and support throughout the year.
Coláiste Eoin strives to provide informative and relevant parenting talks that are facilitated by experts in their field. During the course of the school year, we hosted two talks. In October 2015, “Parenting in the Modern Age” by Michael Byrne took place. This talk was very interesting and parents in attendance found it to be very beneficial. Therefore, it is the intention that Michael will return in the next school year. In January 2016, Harry Freeman spoke on the “Teaching & Learning Policy”. We achieved our highest attendance with this talk and it was well received by all parents.
The Parents’ Association organised the Christmas Raffle which was a huge success thanks to the generous participation of parents and sponsors, and not forgetting Dorothy without whom it would not be possible.
Coláiste Eoin is getting a new school jacket. We would like to commend the Student Council who worked so hard on this process. They took time to survey all students, liaised with suppliers and have found the best possible option. They presented the new jacket to the Board of Management and the Parents’ Association and have our full support. Well done to you all.
We really encourage any parent who wishes to be involved to make contact. The greater the number of parents we can involve the more beneficial it will be for our school and for our children.
