Parents Association

Parents Association!

The Parents' Association is the structure through which parents of pupils in the school can work together with the school for the best possible education opportunities for their children. The Parents' Association works with the principal, staff and representatives from the Board of Management to build an effective partnership between home and school.

Who are we ?

While all parents are asked to participate in the running of the Parents' Association, not all can be involved in the day to day running of the Association. It is for this reason that parents form a committee at the Annual General Meeting. At the first meeting each school year, the Executive positions are filled by election of the committee.

What do we do?

The Parents' Association made up of the committee and representing parents, meet once a term at Rushall NS, some of the topics discussed are:

  • Any School News (school policy and planning)
  • Board of Managements News
  • Safety issues around the school area
  • Up and coming events i.e. communion/confirmation
  • Any parent issues
  • Organise fundraising events

We had a very enjoyable and successful Maths week again this year in Rushall NS. Our school had a wide range of things to do for our students to be involved in.
We here at Rushall NS have been working hard to positively change children's attitudes towards eating fresh fruit and vegetables during Food Dudes Week.
