The Kill O'The Grange Parent Teacher Association is made up of 8-10 volunteer parents representing all classes in the school as well as a representative teacher. Ms. Karen Coe is currently the teacher on the committee this academic year 2021 - 2022. The PTA help arrange a number of fund raising events in the school across the year. Due to covid restrictions the Christmas Fair is unable to go ahead for the second year running, but in lieu of this, the P.T.A are diligently working on the release of the 2023 School Calendar. In tandem with this the committee were very excited to have had Christmas cards featuring the children’s art work that have been pre-ordered by their families in advance of Christmas ready to post!
A Christmas card designed by Lilly O'Gara 6th Class. Well done Lilly!
Other events include bake sales held each term (held only in accordance with covid guidelines). Four classes bake, and the goods are sold in the school hall. We also have a non uniform day on the last Friday of each month. Other key events include the Christmas raffle, tickets will go on sale soon with some super prizes so make sure you get your tickets!
The funds the PTA raise help finance the classroom assistants in Junior Infants and the Senior Infants room each year. This year we also purchased 15 new ipads with covers and a charging station for the school. At the moment we are fund raising for new playground games markings as well as hoping to add to the bank of ipads.
We are very grateful to have the support of the teachers and to all the parents for your generosity.
