Parents and Friends Association (PFA)

Parents are involved in multiple ways in the life of Scoil Mhuire. The Parents and Friends Association (P.F.A.) have been very active since their establishment in 1998.

A dynamic group of 26 committee members are the present leaders of the P.F.A. They run numerous fundraising events throughout the year. They are also actively involved in such school events such as: the Full Attendance Ceremony; Enrolment Week; the School’s bi-annual Book Fair; the First Communion ceremony; Sports Day. Parents also assist with sports coaching and are asked to give feedback on draft policies.

Our PFA runs a facebook group for parents of pupils in the school. It can be very useful in keeping up to date on school matters and getting in contact with other parents. You’ll find it here.


Our Whole School Evaluation deservedly applauded the work of the Scoil Mhuire P.F.A. in 2007:

~ “This strong school community link is a model of good practice with regard to effective parental involvement”. ~
