C.E.T.N.S PARENTS TOGETHER
Parents Together is the name of the Parents Association of Claregalway Educate Together National School.
As soon as the child joins the school you become a member of Parents Together. The level of your involvement is entirely up to you.
We are very active and support the school in many different ways throughout the year by fundraising events, helping out at school occasions and organizing social gatherings.
We have an annual International Evening where we turn the school into a pop-up restaurant. Everyone is invited to come along, bring a dish, sample cuisine from around the world and meet other parents.
Our annual Halloween and St. Patrick’s Day discos are both firm favourites with children and parents alike while also helping to raise vital funds for our school.
We hope you will attend these events and come join in the fun!
At spring mid-term children enjoy Activity Week where parents come to the school and share their interests/expertise by leading various activities. In the past we have had drama workshops, Zumba classes, treasure hunts, artifact drawing, all kind of arts and crafts as well as establishing our own bug hotel.
Parents Together are in the process of producing a recipe book of delicious dishes from around the world. Parents in the school have provided all the recipes. This book will be available to purchase and the proceeds will help raise funds for the school.
Parents Together use the school facebook page to promote events, share photos and keep in contact. This is a closed group but as a new parent you are welcome to join. Simply search for ‘Claregalway Educate Together N.S. Official FB page incl Parents Together’ to find us.
Parents Together hold regular meetings in the school. You are welcome to attend and discuss any issues or fundraising ideas at these meetings. The school notifies all parents by text when these meeting are on. You can also contact the Chairperson of CETNS Parents Together firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to get involved.
