Parents Association


The aim of the Parents Association is to promote a spirit of co-operation & good will between school management, staff & parents - where the education and welfare of school children is concerned, and to contribute to policy formation.

All parents of children attending St. Thomas' JNS are welcome to join the Parents Association. The Association meets approximately ten times a year, and an A.G.M. is held every September. The Parents Association plays a vital role in fund raising for the school & organising events such as:

  • Talks for parents
  • Cake Sale
  • Children's Disco
  • Santa Claus' visit
  • Table Quiz
  • Sponsored Walk
  • Book Fair
  • Book Rental
  • Communion Breakfast
  • Car Boot Sale
  • Ceili
  • School Grounds Clean Up (Autumn & Spring).

The Parents Association is affiliated to the National Parents Council (www.npc.ie) which represents the views of parents to the Minister for Education & Science.

The social aspect of the Parents Association is a great way for new parents to meet other parents and become familiar with the school environment & school activities.
