The Parents Association (PA) is a forum for parents to engage with the Principal, the teachers and the Bord Bainistíochta / Management Board. Every parent of a Gaelscoil Chionn tSáile pupil is automatically a member.


The PA meets on a monthly basis - advance notice is provided through the Nuacht Eile / Other News section of this site or via the text alert system. Please check the school calendar the PA meeting schedule.

Gaelscoil Chionn tSáile Parents Association Committee (2015-2016)

Helping out

The PA organizes the after school club and organizes volunteers to help the teachers during school outings or events at the school. Getting involved in these activities is a great way to support your child's education, and to have fun getting to know other parents at the same time! If you would like to help out in any capacity, please contact us at at

Gardening club

A great way for green-fingered parents to help the school is to join our new Gardening Club! Members meet at the school on Saturday mornings, and all are welcome. To find out more, please contact a member of the Committee.


Every year the parents association organizes a number of social and fundraising events. Past events included family fun days, nights out in Max's Restaurant, table quizzes and coffee mornings.

New ideas for fundraising are always welcome - please contact a member of the Committee to discuss.
