Gaelscoil Ultain’s Parents Association
The Parents’ Association in Gaelscoil Ultain is a very active association, organising a number of events throughout the school year. The Parents’ Association is open to all parents in the school with meetings taking place on the first Monday of each month.
The role of the Gaelscoil Ultain Parents’ Association is to help out at a number of school events and secondly to raise funds to enhance the excellent learning experience the teachers offer our children in Gaelscoil Ultain.
We would be delighted to welcome new members onto the committee; it’s a wonderful opportunity to meet other parents and to get involved in the yearly events in the school.
