PTA

Rathdown has a lively and active Parent Teacher Association (PTA), which works together with the Junior and Senior School Principals to form an effective partnership between home and school.  

The purpose of the PTA is to:

        • Facilitate an efficient and effective communication flow between school management and parents

        • Support the school ethos while promoting the needs and interests of the pupils 

        • Fundraise to enhance the school environment for the pupils and teachers

Over the last few years the PTA has supported many projects including:

        • Debs Reception in the School

        • Habitat for Humanity Trip

        • School Uniform Sale

        • Senior School Christmas Lunch

        • Junior School Santa Visit 

        • Junior School Library

        • Careers Evening and Mock Interviews for pupils

        • Whole school Winter & Summer Socials - eg Centenary gala, Golf event

        • Water coolers in both schools

At the start of each school year, an AGM is held and a PTA Committee is elected. Each elected member serves 3 years on the committee. Parents, whether on the committee or not, are encouraged to get involved. Comment and feedback is welcomed and can be fed to the committee via their Class Reps or via email pta@rathdownschool.ie
