Millstreet Parents Association

Millstreet Parents Association has a new page on Facebook for both Presentation N.S. and Scoil Mhuire B.N.S. in Millstreet.  It will be a place where they advertise upcoming fundraising events and communicate with parents and the community.

Sadly, the last year the Association hasn’t been able to put on any Quiz, Church Gate Collection or Disco to help with the fundraising, but did hold a Movie night, Halloween colouring competition also gave gifts for the First Holy Communion children.  So hopefully newer and safer ways can be found to fundraise and support the schools.

A new Competition is going up on the Facebook page this week ‘Pancake Bake Off’ for the children of the school’s with a super prize.

Here is a reminder of some of the previous good work the Parents Assn has done in Millstreet.
