Parents Association

All parents and guardians of children attending St. Coen’s NS are part of the Parents Association. The team of teachers and staff at St.Coen’s work in partnership with families to insure our children get the most from their time in primary school.

Parent Association Committee

In line with the Education Act 1998, a group of volunteer parents have come together to form our Parents Association Committee. With the support of staff, we help organise activities, events, and fundraising opportunities.

Currently the Committee is made up of 9 parents, and 1 teacher representative. Each member brings different skills and strengths to the group, striving to achieve the very best for our school.

Our Parents:

  • Belinda Heywood
  • Audrey Power
  • Michelle Esmonde
  • Joanne Earls
  • Sinéad Doyle
  • Sue Collardl
  • Emma MacCrimmon
  • Edward Duffy
  • Emma Cahil

Our Teacher Representative:

  • Lee Kavanagh
What the committee does

Committee members gain a greater insight into their child’s school life and learning while also giving parents an opportunity to work towards improving our school community. To achieves this we organise many events throughout the year. The Committee meet once a month to discuss and plan such events and activities, such as:

  • School calendar
  • School portraits
  • Open day events and treats for the children
  • Halloween sponsored walk
  • Christmas Craft Fair
  • Christmas Jumper Day
  • Valentines day Raffle
  • Sports day
  • Supporting charities
  • bi-monthly newsletter

See our Facebook page for upcoming events

What we have achieved to date

Please see our newsletters releases here to see what the committee has been busy with. Newsletters are released bi-monthly.

Interested in Joining or Volunteering?

The Parents Association Committee holds an annual general meeting at the beginning of each school year, where new members are welcome to join. Outside of this, if you are interested in getting involved, please contact the school or a committee member for further information. We would love to grow the group- more hands make for lighter work!
