Parents Association

The Parents’ Association of Rath National School endeavours to work in close collaboration with the Principal, Staff and Board of Management, to create a strong partnership between home and school. Along with receptions for Communion and Confirmation classes, events for the coming year are being explored. These activities should encourage active parental/guardian involvement and positive experiences for pupils and their families as they strive to be the best they can, within the school and local community.

The primary aims of the Association are:

  • To keep members informed about general issues affecting the school.
  • To represent the views of the parents of the children
  • To foster co-operation between the parents, teachers and school management
  • To organise fund raising events to help with the provision of extra equipment, teaching aids and facilities
  • To keep members informed about general issues affecting the school.

New parents are actively encouraged to join the Committee every year.

Some of the events & fundraisers the Parents Association have in the past:

  • Sponsored Walk,
  • Carol Singing
  • Christmas Raffle
  • Social Nights
  • Easter Raffle
  • Along with teachers & parents, some members have taken part in the Women’s Mini Marathon.
  • Discos for the Children
  • Bake Sale
  • Communion

Fund-raising activities by the Parents’ Association have enabled the school to provide extra facilities for students and parents.
