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.
The Parent’s Association in Duiske College for 2017-2018 are:
Chairperson: Mary Moylan
Treasurer: Denise Brooks
Secretary: Marie Hayles
PRO: John Grace
Committee: Deirdre Fenlon, Tom Walsh, Pat Murphy
So far this year, the Parent’s Association have funded the following:
€500 towards a Study Skills Programme
€130 towards a Tchaikovsky Workshop for senior students in the National Concert Hall
€100 towards a Rowing Workshop in Carlow
€400 towards the purchase of 14 tablets for the Maths Department
The school is grateful to the Parents Association for the excellent work it does in raising funds, which are used to develop our facilities and fund school projects.
