PARENT TEACHER ASSOCIATION

The school has had an extremely strong and greatly valued Parent Teacher Association since Lisnagelvin opened in 1978. The school and the Parent Teacher Association are committed to the development of parental involvement and the encouragement of their support.

 Purposes

  •  To enhance social interaction among parents, teachers and children.
  •  To support the educational opportunities offered by the school through the provision of additional finance.
  •  To promote additional opportunities and experiences for the pupils.
  •  To provide a forum for discussion and provision of information for the parent body.

Principles

  • The organising committee consists of a minimum of fourteen parents and four teachers. Parents' representation is agreed at an annual general meeting and parents serve for a period of two years while teachers are nominated from among the staff on an annual basis.
  • The chairperson and secretary are chosen from the parents and the teachers elect the treasurer.
  • An independent auditor is appointed at the Annual General Meeting
  • Meetings of committee are held on a regular basis with set agendas and agreed systems of minute keeping.
  • The committee maintains a partnership with the school, seeking the involvement of the parent body and supporting teachers   in the delivery of the curriculum.
  • A range of functions and events are provided (including those aimed directly at the pupils and others), both social and educational, for parents, teachers and friends.
  • Methods of fund raising are subject to review and agreed procedures will be established for book keeping purposes and for distribution of monies raised.  A copy of the transactions is made available to all parents in the Governors' Annual Report.

The success of the Parent Teacher Association is always dependent on the tremendous support given by the parents. As the school continues to flourish, so does its needs. Therefore we commend to you the work of our Parent Teacher Association.
