PTA -Parents’ and Teachers’ Association

You, me and every parent at our school is part of the Parents’ and Teachers’ Association. A smaller number of us are in the committee — and we are here to represent you, and to listen! We are always looking for new members and volunteers. If you’d like to help out, let us know — you can do as little or as much as you like. Even if you can only take part in a minor way, your contribution to our school community is so important!

  • How do I get involved?
  • The PTA is as much about building a community as it is about organising events and fundraising. We have monthly meetings in the school (normally the first Thursday of every month) and other social events too. It’s great craic,  so come along and join the fun!  Please use the following email address to contact the PTA: [email protected] or visit the group on Facebook and click Join Group to get started!

The PTA in the community

Our kids are at the heart of what we do, and we want our school to be at the centre of the wider Skerries community too. We had to put the breaks on during Covid but now we’re out there again and it’s great! In the run up to Christmas we delivered festive cards and gifts made by the students to local nursing homes. It’s difficult to say who was happier! The kids making the cards or their recipients!

The PTA and sustainability

Skerries Educate Together is a Green School and we’re always looking for ways to help foster more sustainable ways of living. Right now we’re organizing a car boot sale on the school grounds where unwanted items will be given a new lease of life!


Fundraising is obviously a big part of what the PTA does – and everything we raise goes back into our school, whether it’s helping fund school trips or buying sports equipment for the school. So far this year we’ve already raised more than 3000 Euros through Christmas cards, raffles and events like the Honesty Box Book Fair we held for World Book Day!

The PTA and the school

In all the above our aim is to think about how we can nurture our children, how we can continue to improve their learning environment and how we can make our school greener. When we put our talents together we can achieve so much for our school and our children — let’s give them everything they deserve.
