The Parent/Teacher Association of St. Peter’s National School promotes a structure through which parents/guardians of the students can work with and contribute positively to the life and vitality of the school community.

We assist the Principal and teachers in organising events throughout the year to enhance the sense of community and the learning environment and experience for the pupils.

We also organise fund raising activities for specified projects.  We funded Nutrition and E-Safety talks for parents and musical instruments.

Past events include the Christmas Craft Fair and Raffle, Book Fair, Beach Walk, Art Sale and parents’ social evenings, Halloween party, new parents coffee morning and school Sports Day.

All parents/guardians are automatically members of the P.T.A; any parent/guardian can apply to be a member of the PTA Committee at the Annual General Meeting each September.

If you have any questions or would like to get in touch, please email us at PTA@stpetersnsdrogheda.com

A huge thank you to our terrific parents who baked, crafted, organised stalls, sold raffle tickets and prepared food. Everyone had a brilliant time. A massive well done to our students who performed a number of Christmas songs and carols on the day.
