Glenswilly National School has a vibrant Parents’ Association . Membership is open to all parents/guardians of all pupils enrolled. Parents are encouraged to come to meetings, join in activities and to bring in lots of new ideas. The PA runs many events throughout the year, which help to raise valuable funds for our school, so if you can help in any way, please don’t hesitate to join in. It promotes the interests of the pupils in co-operation with the Board of Management, Principal and staff. Parents as a group have a wide range of talents, abilities and skills that have the potential to enrich and extend the educational opportunities provided for pupils.

Since its inception the Parents Association has made a very worthwhile contribution to the school community. It is a structure through which parents can work together for the best possible education for their children. The PA works with the principal, staff and the BOM to build effective partnership between home and school.

Children do better, behave better and are happier at school where parents and teachers work closely together and support each other. Teachers can do a better job where they are supported by and working closely with parents. Parents can do a better job when they have the support of other parents.
