The purpose of the Parents Association (PA) is to provide a structure through which the parents /guardians of children attending Ennis National School (ENS), can work together for the best possible education of their children.

We care about the educational and social experience of our children and work to build bridges between the home and school for productive partnerships.

We are a point of communication between all the parents of the school, the Principal, and the Board of Management.

At the start of every school year, we invite any parents interested in volunteering with the PA to our Annual General Meeting (AGM) where we will establish our leadership committee which will organise our activities.  The PA Committee members are voted in for a minimum of 2 years and a maximum of 4 years in order to facilitate continuity but also make space for new members and new ideas.

The Committee will strive to meet every 1-2 months in the evening at the school.

Through fundraising activities with parent volunteers the PA finances our projects and contributes to fun events for ENS kids and families.

The following are activities that the ENS PA manages or has participated in throughout the years:

-Assisting in the Jr/Sr Infants Halloween Hobble

-Assisting with the Halloween Quiz and running a tuck shop (sweets and snack shop) on the night

-Tea/Coffee Reception at the Christmas Concerts

-Running a tuck shop on the night of the Christmas Disco and organising a raffle

-Organising and managing the annual Flag Day (accepting donations around Ennis town from passers-by)

-Facilitating the annual School Photo Day

-Organising an Easter Fun Event (in the past this has been a Bingo night or another Quiz)

-Organising and managing the Communion, Confirmation, and Graduation receptions for students and their families

-Organising commemorative hoodies for the 6th class students

-Helping to recruit volunteers for the annual Fun Day in June and ordering and paying for the games, face painters, entertainment, etc on the day.
