About The Parents Association
The Parents Association at Canal Way Educate Together National School was formally established in September 2014. The main aim of the Association is to give a voice to students’ parents within the School community and to help us actively participate in the development and running of the school. #
The work of the Parents Association is extremely important. CWETNS rely on money raised by the parents to support our school. We pride ourselves in being a school that does not ask for sizeable contributions in the middle of the year as many other schools do. We want our school to be inclusive and without unnecessary financial pressure. However, if you are able, we kindly ask that you contribute as generously as you can during events and fundraisers.
Every year we spend money that is raised by the parents association on resources for the children. So when you contribute to events, it goes directly to enhancing your child’s experience in school and their education. Year to date, we have achieved the following: :
- Magic Dress Up raised €800 and we purchased plants for the building, and all will agree that they really brighten the environment up.
- Winter Cards & Winter Fair raised around €4,200 and we are ordering Aistear teaching resources and science equipment currently. We will be in touch with photos etc on this.
- Future Events this year – We will be buying library books for our growing classes.
We will be organizing a series of fundraising activities and events throughout the school year, to raise money for various school improvement projects and to buy new materials and equipment. We will be sharing more details about our fundraising target and plans in the coming weeks. In the meantime, if you have any ideas or suggestions, please email them to [email protected].
