Parents

 

Sligo Grammar School’s Parents Association was established in 2006.

The SGS PA is based on the following principles:

  1. Promotion of parent and guardians and those entrusted with the primary responsibility for the education of their children.
  2. Advancement of the education and welfare of the pupils in accordance with the Church of Ireland and Protestant traditions of the school.
  3. Fostering of understanding and co-operation among parents, teachers, the Board of Directors and the Board of Management.
  4. Promotion of social and educational activities.

Membership is open to all parents and guardians of registered pupils attending the school in the current school year.

The Sligo Grammar School Parents Association is affiliated to Compass

 

PARENTS ASSOCIATION ACTIVITIES

The Parent’s Association organises different activities during the year, including talks for parents and students, information evenings,  mock interviews for senior students and fundraising events. Parents and guardians are asked to make a voluntary contribution on behalf of their children.

The voluntary contribution is €10. It is used to enhance our children’s education.   Among other things the money is used to purchase ICT supports,  improve Study Skills, purchase books for the Library and sports equipment.

To enable the parents association to continue this work could you please forward your payment to the school office at your earliest convenience.  These Funds are vital to us being able to host a variety of events throughout the year.
