Coiste na dTuismitheoirí

Parents’ Committee

The purpose of the parent association is to provide a structure through which the parents/guardians of children attending Gaelscoil Thulach na nÓg can work together for the best possible education for their children. The parent association will work with the board of management, principal and staff to build effective partnership of home and school.

Officer Position holders are in their second consecutive year. It is advised that these positions are not held for more than three consecutive years.

We welcomed four new members to our committee this year 2023/2024. It is open to all and committee members presently represent most class standards in the school.
Class reps have also been set up to relay any pertinent message to parents via the class WhatsApp group.

The principal also attends all PAC meetings. These meetings are held monthly to review and progress. Decisions are made by those in attendance to enable the tasks to be completed in a timely manner.
