Introduction

Parents' Association

The Parents’ Association in a school works with the Principal, Staff and Board of Management to build effective co-operation and partnership between the home and school. Its role is to promote the interests of the children in a school in co-operation with the Board of Management, Principal, Teachers and Students. (Education Act 1998). Our Parents’ Association aims to arrange a variety of activities throughout the school year to promote the Good Shepherd National School, promote the involvement of parents in the school and raise necessary finances as well as co-ordinating other events. While all pupils’ parents are members of the Parents’ Association, the majority are not involved in the day-to-day running of the association. Families from across the school are represented by the current Parents’ Association committee:

Hazel Keogan, Hilary McDonagh, Adrienne McDermott, Anna Kurpanik, Anne Spooner Nolan, Caitriona McCarthy, Doreen Finn, Ingrid Fuxova-Collins, Paige Edwards,Maria Jesus Muniz Rojas, Mariana Miconi, Michelle Edwards, Susan Garrigan, Rasha Rasheed.
