Open Invitation to the First Meeting of the NKETNS Parent Teacher Association


Dear Parents and Guardians,

It has been decided to form a Parent Teacher Association in the North Kildare Educate Together National School (N.K.E.T.N.S.)

The main roles of the Association will be:

  • To work in partnership with the Principal, Board of Management and the whole school community for the betterment of the children in the school
  • To support and empower parents to be active in the best interests of their children’s educational lives.

It is hoped that the PTA will also be active in fundraising and in coordinating with other parent groups within the school. Any other suggestions on how the PTA can contribute to the school are very welcome.

The first meeting of the N.K.E.T.N.S. Parent Teacher Association will take place in the school hall at 8.15pm on Wednesday 24th February 2016.

All parents and teachers are automatically members of the PTA and all parents and teachers are invited to this meeting.

The purpose of the meeting will be to elect a PTA Committee. The positions to be elected are:

  • Chairperson
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • Junior Classes Rep (Junior Infants to Second Class)
  • Senior Classes Rep (Third Class to Sixth Class)

(The two parents’ reps on the Board of Management are also members of the PTA Committee as well as one teacher).

If you are interested in applying for any of these positions, please let the Parents’ Representatives on the Board of Management know. You can contact Enda Martin at endamartin@gmail.com or Maria Alcazar at maria98alcazar@gmail.com Nominations will also be taken for these positions at the meeting on 24th February.

This is your Association in your children’s school and this is a great opportunity to get involved, to be active in, and make a positive contribution to your children’s education.

Yours sincerely,
