Parent Teacher Association
You, me and every parent at our school is part of the Parent Teacher Association. A smaller number of us are in the committee — and we are here to represent you, and to listen! We are always looking for new members and volunteers. If you’d like to help out, let us know — you can do as little or as much as you like. Even if you can only take part in a minor way, your contribution is welcome!
How do I get involved?
The PTA is as much about building a community of parents as it is about organising events and fundraising. We have regular meetings and social events too. It’s great craic, so come along and join the fun! Submit a comment to our suggestion box below and we’ll get back to you, or visit the group on Facebook, and click Join Group to get started!
The PTA in the community
Our kids are at the heart of what we do, and we want our school to be at the centre of Powerstown ETNS community too. We work closely with our neighbouring school, Gaelscoil an Chuilinn on campus issues and engage with our community.
Fundraising is a big part of what the PTA does — amongst other things last year we have had movie nights, a fancy dress cake sale and a Winter Fair, raising over two thousand euro for our school! For more information on fundraising activities and PA events, see our school newsletters/website.
The PTA and our school
The PTA is not just about fundraising — we are here to think about ways we can nurture our children, how we can continue to improve their learning environment, how we can support our school to flourish.
When we put our talents together we can achieve so much for our school and our children — let’s give them everything they deserve.
