Welcome to Donaghey Parents’ Association (DPA). We are a small, informal group of parents and guardians who meet up each term to discuss ways of helping and supporting the staff and pupils in the school. As a parent of a child or children at Donaghey Primary School, you are automatically entitled to attend meetings of the Parents’ Association. It is a brilliant way of getting to know other parents of children at our school.
The purpose of the DPA is simple:
- To give the parents a forum to put forward suggestions and ideas to enhance the development of the school.
- To provide a link between school and home and offer opportunities for parental involvement in school activities.
- To hold fundraising events to support the school and pupils
- To provide refreshments for open days, concerts etc.
We would actively encourage any parent to come along to our meetings where you would be made very welcome. Parental participation at organised events is crucial to ensure each event is a success and any time volunteered is greatly appreciated. Your thoughts, suggestions and comments are most valuable and are vital to the success and enhancement of our school. Not forgetting, of course, the cup of tea or coffee & biscuits and a chat with other parents!
