The AGM of the Greenlanes Parents' Association took place at the school on Wednesday 20th September.
A new committee was formed and is made up of nine parents - six from last year's committee and three new members.
A big thank you to Sarah Armstrong, Nicola Barry, Ciara Burns, Gerard O'Rourke and Hugo Thompson who stepped down from the committee and to all parents who supported us and the school over the last year.
We welcome and appreciate the involvement of the three new committee members, Sara, Mary Rose and Pauline.

We welcome the support of all parents.

The NPC is currently developing its new Strategic Plan 2018-2022, as part of this process we are consulting parents and other stakeholders. As children are at the centre of everything we do within NPC we want to ensure we are including their voices within the development of this plan.

It would be great if you could ask your child/children to complete this brief survey and assist them with it if they need any help, we really want to include their feedback.

This is the link to the survey for children https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Your_Parents_and_You_in_Primary_School

Many thanks

Kind regards

Ronan White - Chairperson PA 

PS: Please note if you have more than one child, each child can complete a separate survey
