NPC Minority Religion Grouprepresenting parents of children of non-catholic

Dear Parents

National Parents Council Primary (NPC) is the representative
organisation for parents of children in primary education. By being part of
NPC, both individual parents and Parent Associations can be part of making
changes in our education system at a national level.  In order to hear the
voices of parents in different settings and situations NPC has a number of
Special Interest groups

 Currently, NPC has the following special interest groups:

Minority Religion Group – representing parents of children of non-catholic

Migrant Parent Group – representing migrant parents

Special Educational Needs Group – representing parents of children with special
educational needs in mainstream and special schools   

Irish medium Schools Group – representing parents of children in Irish medium
and Gaeltacht schools 

Traveller Parent Group – representing Traveller parents

Being part of a special interest group allows parents to explore the
particular issues pertaining to their group and to exchange information and
ideas to further benefit the education and wellbeing of their children. The
special interest groups are each entitled to have one representative on the NPC
Assembly, which is the body within NPC concerned with developing educational

We are trying to determine the level of interest in the Minority
Religion Group

questionnaire to the attention of all parents of children of non-catholic
faiths in your school. We would welcome support in (a) the determination of the
aims and objectives of the group, as well as (b) the exploration of key issues
facing these parents of children in primary school. If you are interested in
being part of this group please print
