Every member of the parent community is a member of the PTA.

What is the PTA?

The Parent Teacher Association is a forum at which the parents and staff work together to build a sense of school community. We do that by working together to solve problems and by organising events that support opportunities for whole school involvement.

How it Works

The PTA has a committee that oversees various activities. The PTA meets once a month and any parent can attend.

Meetings are held in the school hall usually on the 2nd Tuesday of the month. We also help coordinate the many volunteers that sign up to help with the many activities.

Get Involved

Le Chéile has a range of opportunities for parents, friends and local community to become involved in our school.

How Do I Get Involved?

Getting involved in any small way directly enriches the environment in which your child learns, grows and plays. Not everybody has the time to join the committee but …

there are many ways in which you can help.

 

I have an hour or two—that’s enough time to help setup or supervise an event!

I have a few hours—that could help plan or run an event!

I have a couple of hours a month—that’s enough time to attend the monthly meeting and give your classes ideas!

I have a few hours a month—that’s plenty of time to take up one of the committee roles!

I already volunteer for another organisation—that’s great—do you have any suggestions for us?

I am unavailable—we understand—are we sharing enough information with you?
