Coiste na dtuistí / Parents' Association

We are very fortunate to have a very active and supportive parent body in Gaelscoil Átha Í. Every parent of the school is automatically a member of the Parents' Association and is welcome to attend any of the meetings.

Parents' Association meetings are usually held once per term. Many of these meetings will be held using Zoom. The meeting link is shared using the Aladdin Connect school app.

Throughout the school year, our Coiste na dTuismitheoirí organises a number of fundraising activities along with many events for our pupils. The unwavering support is very valuable to the entire school community, and is a great way for parents to become involved in their children's school.
