Come along to our next meeting on first Tuesday of the month at 7.00pm! 

Corran Integrated Primary School Parents' Council

A note from the Chairperson.

As a parent or legal guardian of a child or children attending Corran Integrated Primary School or Nursery, you immediately become a member of the Parents' Council. The Parents' Council of an integrated school plays a key role consulting on issues that directly affect our children (eg. The Promoting Positive Behaviour Policy) as well as supporting the school by organising volunteers and fundraising.

We are a voice for the parents in the school and the postholders liaise with the school for discussion of points raised at our meetings and to arrange fundraising events. We also provide refreshments at many of the school events, such as open days, prize giving, Sacraments. We also arrange a special visit from Santa at Christmas!

Our fundraising has provided essential equipment for the education of our children, such as new books, topic based  nursery equipment and resources to support learning in all areas of the curriculum.  We are now concentrating our fundraising efforts on our school allotment to hep gain Eco School recognition.

Some of our past fundraising activities have included:

  • a very successful pub quiz
  • making up hampers for local charities as well as one to raffle in aid of the school (with donations of food and drinks from parents)
  • recording Christmas performances on DVD
  • an Easter ballot
  • a sponsored Zumbathon
  • a fantastic Summer Fun Day (which really showed the community spirit we have at Corran!)

 

We are simply  parents who strive to promote the integrated ethos through parental involvement. The more people we can attract to help, the greater the things we can do together for the benefit of our school. We all have one thing in common, our children's best interests at heart.

For further information we would be delighted for you to come to any of our meetings that are usually held on the first Tuesday of every month or contact one of the postholders via the school office.
