Wren Park Parents Association was started in 1967 and is very active with helping to link the home and school. We aim to:
Details of the constitution of the Association can be found in the school brochure. All parents are automatically members whilst they have a child at Wren Park: there being no membership fee or annual subscription. The Annual General Meeting is held each year in October when all parents are invited to attend and elect a new committee. Meetings to which all parents are invited are held approximately twice a term, the date and time of the next meeting can be found in the diary dates section of this website. The committee are keen to hear the views of parents and welcome any contribution of thought or ideas.
You will already be aware of some of the work of the Parents Association. We hold social and fundraising events and try to vary them so that there is something to suit everyone during the year. Events which the children particularly enjoy are discos, film nights and chocolate bingo!
The Christmas Fair and Summer Fete are the most important fundraising events of the year and require a lot of hard work by parents and teachers to make them successful. Although the smiles on the children's faces would be reward enough, these events have generated funds to facilitate developments such as the provision of the library. We have also helped to fund the Trim Trail and have bought two classroom sets of iPads.
Last year we raised money to add to the school's curriculum resources, especially Maths.
We can only function well with active and enthusiastic members! Please support your association in whatever way you can....we have lots of fun!
