Millstreet Primary Schools Parents Association, would like to ask people to help in this years fundraising for the Presentation N.S. and Scoil Mhuire B.N.S.
Usually, they have put on Quizzes, Disco’s and Church Gate Collections to help raise money, and after expenses of First Holy Communion and any gifts, the money left over would be divided between the schools.
So, the Parents Association decided to stay safe within the current regulations, and have set up a Go Fund Me page as their main Fundraiser for the year, and hopefully we will be able to have our usual events next year.

Another way to pay is directly into the Assn’s Bank account, details can be got by messaging the Assn directly on their Facebook Page Link for Facebook
Also, the Parents Assn would like to say a ‘Big Thank You’ to all the Children, Principals, Teachers, Parents, Grandparents, Past Pupils, Families, Local Businesses and Friends who have supported the Primary Schools Parents Assn in the past, and anything you can spare would be gratefully received.
In previous years, the money has gone towards STEM equipment, Sports Equipment, New Desks, Novels for the classroom, and a portion was put towards the important purchase of a defibrillator, also a portion went towards installation of hot water in classrooms. Sadly, with Covid_19, the Parents Assn have been unable to collect any money for the Schools, or put on their usual events, but they have continued to give gifts for the First Holy Communion, and ran for Halloween a Colouring Competition, Fancy Dress Competition plus a safe online Movie Night. Also, they had fantastic entries for a Pancake Bake Off Competition, and not forgetting the St Patrick’s Day Video (which is still available for viewing on their Facebook page), thank you to all the children who took part. And another competition is on until Friday 2nd April (See their previous post).
Current Committee, Michaela Donegan (Chair), Sinead Corkery (Secretary), Claire Twomey (Treasurer), Denise Buckley, Tracy Cronin, Kate Kelleher, Caitriona McCarthy, Marie Bourke, Mary Irish-Daniels. New members are always welcome.
