Ennis National School Parents’ Association

6th Class Hoodies
They should be here within approx 4 weeks.
Volunteers are welcome to assist with supervision and walking with students.
Confirmation is next Friday but no involvement from PA.
Communion 6th May, 11am in Cathedral. Parents of 1st class asked to donate food on
the Friday evening or Saturday morning and help with PA serve this with teas &
coffees. PA Volunteers needed…
County photos have been booked.

Fun Bingo Night
Claire to check with the school if this is to go ahead but it will need to be after Easter.
St. Patrick’s Day no uniform day fundraiser was missed by the PA but hopefully we
will be able to replace it with a further fundraiser later in the year.
School Lunch
One company seems to have a potential offer but a rep will need to meet with school
management as there are still a number of queries as to how the logistics of
distribution will work.
– Parents Association are giving a lot of their time (and other volunteers within
the school) but there shouldn’t be an expectation that PA members need to do
it all. We need to discuss way of encouraging more parents to be involved in
various activities. The more that volunteer, the less everyone will ultimately
need to do!!
– Time for future meetings 7pm.
