Compass Parents AGM

Please see the agenda for the COMPASS AGM 2018 below.   

We are at a crucial stage within Irish education and particularly in relation to Parent involvement in the Education system (National representation/Parent Charter etc.) so we ask that you please do your best to attend this important AGM and encourage other parents from you school to come along too.

COMPASS is the link, through NPCpp, for parents in Minority Religion schools to the Government and the Department of Education. You are the link between parents at your school and COMPASS so please:

1. Pass this on to ensure that all parents at your school are advised about the date and encouraged to attend our AGM.
2. Email us back with a brief outline of the activities that the PA or PTA at your school have been involved in during the past year. (comprehensive but brief please).
3. Be prepared to get involved and to encourage other parents to link with COMPASS.

We would appreciate if you would please confirm your attendance (and others from your school that you know will attend) to Compass Secretary at 

Emails about your PA/PTA activities should be sent to this address also. (We will share outlines of activities at different schools on the day).
The Compass Executive Committee strives to develop and promote the organisation and parent representation at national level.
Information flow, new parents and new ideas help to keep us relevant and vibrant. Please do get involved.
Thank you, in anticipation for your help. We look forward to welcoming you at the AGM.
Kind regards,

Julie Carr
