Griffeen Valley Educate Together National School


(Parent Teacher Association)

What is the PTA?

The parent association is the structure through which parents in a school 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.

How do I get involved?

Without parent volunteers there would be no PTA. The PTA supports the school buy running activities and fundraisers throughout the year. Many improvements or updating of equipment would not happen without the efforts of the PTA. If you can help the PTA in anyway please contact us. An hours help here and there make all the difference.
