There is an active Parents Association operating in Coon National School. All parents of students attending the school are welcome to get involved in the Association.
It is our aspiration to hold one meeting per term to discuss matters relating to the school and to organise Fund Raising activities. The meetings are held in the hall in Coon Village. There are 2 members of the Association sitting on the Board of Management who take issues and suggestions discussed by parents to the Board.
The Association is affiliated to the National Parents Council Primary and takes guidance from this body on matters effecting education nationwide. It also allows a channel for parents to make their views known on Education Policy.
The funds raised go towards subsidising school activites like swimming, school tours and trips, sports and purchase of sports equipment.
The Association are always looking for any assistance they can get with school activities. It can be helping out on swimming day, or spending a few hours bag packing. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated. Please contact any of the committee members for further information.
