today, the students set the following targets for the council next year:
to finalise a new meeting room now that the Heavy institute is complete.
to organise fundraisers early in the year.
to collaborate closer with the parents council to gain a higher profile.
to reform the first year lockers.
The school hosted a Trocaire non uniform day in aid of the Haiti earthquake disaster. It took place on the 5th of February and the school raised over 2800 euro for the earthquake victims.
The Parents’ Council of Coláiste Mhuire would like to express a sincere thank you to all parents who contributed over the year: “We are particularly greatful to those who contributed time to the work of the council. The funds we raised from subscriptions over the year were put to very good use in the school.
Among the many areas we helped out in were the provision of a defibrilator for the school and of some equipment for the music department. We ran a very successful table quiz in the Greville Arms and are hoping to repeat the performance next March.”
Chairperson Sandra Neville tells me that The Parents’ Council meets once a month and all parents are welcome to attend. Come along and support your son and our school.
