1. The aim is to raise €10,000 this year and this will be difficult to achieve without help from the parents.  Parents Association meetings will be held on the first Wednesday of the month and can committee members, class reps and Board of Management parents reps please block off this date in their diaries.

3. Updates
School book fair raised €2137.25 of which €1282.35 goes to the school. Very successful and we may repeat the book fair later in the year.

A number of ideas were put forward for fundraising for the year and the following events were decided upon, with others possibly to be organised later.  Can people please get in contact with the PA if they wish to get involved in organising or helping at any of these events or if they have any ideas for fundraising or family events.
