Spa National School has an active Parents’ Association, comprising of all parents who have children enrolled in the school. The Parents’ Association is run by an elected committee who meet once a month in term time. An annual General Meeting is held once a year and all parents are invited and encouraged to attend. The Association is active in the areas of school life and general representation of the interests of parents to the School Principal and Board of Management.
Our Parents’ Association works in partnership with the Principal, Board of Management and the whole school community for the benefit of the children in the school. We aim to represent the interests and views of all parents of children in the school and to enable parents to play an active part in school life and contribute to improving the school’s facilities for the benefit of the children.
We assist with extra-curricular activities including after school classes, Christmas concerts, fundraising initiatives, policy development, overseeing the book rental scheme, school garden and other educational and fun events for the children. We have also worked in partnership with the Principal and teachers to help update the anti-bullying policy. The committee meets once a month to discuss upcoming issues and events. All parents are welcome to join the committee and can do so by coming along to a committee meeting.
The present Parents’ Association is always looking for more parents to get involved. The current officers are
Joint Chairperson: Rowena Savage
Secretary: Máiréad Galvin
Treasurer: Sylvia Wesotowska-Borowy
P.R.O.: Aileen O Carroll
If you would like to get involved please contact Mary Brennan, our school secretary on 066 7136618 and she will pass on the officers’ contact details to you!
