About our PTA:

Pelletstown ETNS Parent Teacher Association (PTA) was established in November 2017.

The PTA is a voluntary association which allows parents/guardians of pupils to work together with the school to ensure the best possible education for our children.The PTA works to support the principal and staff of Pelletstown ETNS in many ways including:

  • Organising a range of fundraising activities to benefit the school
  • Participating in the review of school policies
  • Organising family events
  • Arranging courses of interest for parents

    PTA elections will take place annually at our AGM, following which a new PTA committee will be formed in line with our PTA Constitution.

    Welcome to the third year of the Parent-Teacher Association at PETNS. The inaugural meeting was held on 7th November welcoming new members and the continuing old members. This year the PTA are excited to continue their efforts on fundraising, raising parent engagements including parent speaker volunteering in addition to supporting the school and parent community. With the continuous support of our Principal Caitríona, the staff and the Board of management, we look forward to making this year as one of the best years of our school.

    The PTA has worked hard over the past three years to organise coffee mornings, table quizzes, bake sales, picnics in the park, bag2school clothing drives, art exhibitions and other social/fundraising events. They set up the Room Parent Volunteer system to assist in communicating important information as well as organised class photos, readathons as well as creating opportunities for parents to get involved as guest speakers in the classroom. The PTA also established the school website, which will be a valuable information tool as the school continues to grow. We would like to express our gratitude to Vera Cummings for all her hard work in setting this up and continuing to update it. The entire school community is very grateful for all the parents that work hard to make our school the best it can be.
