Welcome to the Holy Trinity Parents Association!
The aim of the Parents Association is to support the parents and the school. The Parent Association is the structure through which parents/guardians in a school can work together for the best possible education for their children. The Parent Association works with the principal, staff and the board of management to build effective partnership of home and school. How we do this varies each year, based on requests from parents and on the needs of the school. Each year in conjunction with the school we will support parents through education, for example we have run courses on the Stay Safe Programme to support parents and on internet safety in the last couple of years.
The Parents Association has recently taken on the task of operating the library on a weekly basis. We staff the library three mornings each week. We also have a School Garden Club where a number of our parents volunteer to aid classes in the planting and maintaining of this wonderful amenity. If you would like to get involved, please get in touch.
Throughout the year we run a number of events such as coffee mornings, fundraisers and school events. Our aim is to meet once a month. We publish a newsletter each month. We welcome all volunteers, including grandparents to our association. Garda vetting forms can be completed through the office. Our contact details are also available through the office.
The following are a number of useful websites:-
www.scholastic.ie - Shop on Scholastic all year round and support the school. 25% of all purchases over €10 translates to free books for the school. Remember to register the school at checkout.
https://pdst.ie/staysafe - all information on the Stay Safe Programme that is used in the school can be found here.
www.npc.ie - the National Parents Council (NPC) is there to support all parents. Holy Trinity is a registered school with the NPC and therefore free to all parents to use. They have a help line which can be used for any school related issues at all. I highly recommend them.
