St Columba's School Parents' Association
What is the Parents’ Association?
The Parents Association (PA) is for all parents of children in the school and is a structure through which parents/guardians can work together for the best possible education for their children.
We welcome your support and hearing your views so please feel free to contact any PA members or e-mail us at
In addition to assisting parents with any queries, throughout the year the PA organises activities and fund raising for the school. PA members and volunteers assist with events including First Communion, Graduation, School trips, Quiz nights, Book fair, and Christmas and Easter celebrations amongst others. Fund raising activities include the annual table quiz, raffles, personalised Christmas cards, and GAA car parking.
Funds raised by the PA are used by the school for items that may not be covered by government funding. Over the past few years this has included the purchase of classroom blinds, interactive whiteboards, iPad’s, the hall stage and the sound system.
We are a very relaxed and informal group and new members are always welcome. Meetings are held in the school approximately once every 8 weeks, generally on a Tuesday at 8pm and usually last less than an hour.
The meetings are quite enjoyable and a great way to get involved with the school and also to meet other parents. There is no obligation to attend as we all know the pressures of getting kids ready for school the next day!
Would you like to join us?
We are always keen to get parents from new junior infant classes involved as this class can be under-represented on the PA as parents familiarise themselves with the school.
If you’d like to get involved please feel free to email us at or contact one of the current members who will be delighted to talk to you.
