The parents association is the structure through which parents of Scoil Muhire can work together for the best possible education for their children. The parent association works with the principal, staff and the board of management to build effective partnership between the home and school. Partnership between the home and school is important because with positive and active partnership the child gets the best that primary education can offer.
Our meetings are held on the first Thursday of the month in the school. Newcomers are always both needed and welcome. If you would like to be copied on news from the Parents Association please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add you to our list.
