Welcome to the Parents' Association section of the Scoil Pol website.
The Parents' Association in Scoil Pól is a key element in the school structure having two representatives on the Board of Management. Each and every parent/guardian is an automatic member of the Association and your active involvement is encouraged. It is only by being involved that you will benefit from the various meetings and talks that the association holds throughout the year. Every parent/guardian has the same fears and worries for their child from the start of secondary school and as they progress through school, and being able to meet with and talk to other parents, enables these fears and worries to be eased.
The Association has several functions. As mentioned, two Parent representatives are members of the Board of Management, serving a three year term. The Association helps in the review and drafting of all school policies. Guest speakers are organised through the year on various topical issues and recently we covered the topics of cyber bullying and teen sexual health issues. We are also working on developing the second hand school book sale held at the end of the school year
The Association also holds a number of fund raising events in the year, for example, Christmas raffle and used clothes collection. Monies raised are used to help Scoil Pól fund classroom and extracurricular resources, and assist Cairdeas and Student Council committees.
The aim of the Association is to be strong and vibrant resource for all parents/guardians. I would like to invite you to come to our meetings and play an active, positive role in our Association, to the benefit of your son/daughter, as they journey through secondary school in Scoil Pól.
