Parent Teacher Association - Notice of AGMWednesday 24th September 2014 at 8pm
It's AGM time again and we need you there!
This is your opportunity to hear what we have been up to over the last year and forward any ideas you may have for the coming year. 2013/2014 was a very busy year with cake sales, Santa's visit, Communion party, to mention a few! The financial report for 2013/2014 will be presented at the meeting and will be posted on the school website www.prosperousns.ie Printed copies will be available from the school office.
The AGM is also the time when the new committee is elected. If you have never joined before (or even if you have) why not consider joining this year? You can join without needing to hold down a specific office. There are no special qualifications required and it is a great opportunity to be involved first hand with the school and to meet other parents/guardians. New members are always needed to ensure the same high level of activities and services can be provided from year to year. If you would like to join but can't come to the AGM, another parents/guardian may nominate you at the meeting.
After the meeting parents will be given a tour of the all-weather area and the new building.
We lok forward to seeing you there,

This year’s FÉILTE will take place on Saturday, 4 October in the RDS, Dublin ».
FÉILTE, the Festival of Education in Learning and Teaching Excellence, is a celebration of innovation in teaching. The theme of this year’s event is “Talking about teaching: Tearing down the walls".
FÉILTE 2014 will feature a mix of over 50 showcases and workshops spanning projects from across the education sector, demonstrating the innovation happening in teaching and learning now.
The day will commence with a keynote address by broadcaster Ryan Tubridy, followed by three panel discussions chaired by Matt Cooper. One of the panels will focus on well-being and contributors will be Bressie, Eoghan McDermott, Conor Cusack, Clare Hayes (AWARE) and AnnMarie Ireland (teacher and facilitator withwww.chilloutireland.ie »). This topic was a highlight of last year’s event and the panel will build on that conversation.
The two other panels will focus on the themes of the needs of newly qualified teachers and those of experienced teachers. The day will start and end with performances by the National Children's Choir and the Teachers' Musical Society. You can view the full programme here » .
