Parent’s Association

Duiske College Parents Association has raised €3,310 on its annual Monster Draw 2019.

Thank you to everyone who sold cards, local businesses who sponsored prizes and allowed us to collect outside their premises, TY students who sold cards and to the parents and guardians who supported the draw.

The money raised is all spent on the students of Duiske College.

Duiske College has a vibrant and hardworking Parent’s Association. Parents meet at the beginning of the school year to elect their own committee, and any parent or guardian is welcome to join the Parent’s Association. The committee meets on a regular basis throughout the school year.

The Parent’s Association holds an annual Monster Draw, usually in November, which raises money which is used to fund projects or resources in Duiske College. All money collected is spent on the students in Duiske College.
