Regional Meeting:

A meeting of the Dublin Region of PACCS is planned to be held in Knocklyon Community School on 8th February at 7.30.  Parents from all the C & C schools in Dublin are invited to attend.  It is some time since there has been a meeting in the Region and it hoped to have the Region meet on a more regular basis in the future.

Notice of all Regional meetings will be posted as they come to hand.

NPCpp:

A short report on NPCpp was given.  Preparations are ongoing for the Spring Seminar which will take place on 8th April next.

The two main issues at present are the ASTI issue and its possible implications for our students, the Parents’ Charter and plans for the Spring Seminar.

Conference:

Plans for PACCS Conference 2017 are ongoing and will be posted on the website as they are confirmed.

Many of you have contacted us through the ‘contact’ on the website.  We welcome these contacts and would ask you to continue.

Request:

We want to thank the many parents’ associations who have forwarded details of the officers of the Parents’ Associations in your schools to PACCS.  However, there are still some to come.  Therefore, we would ask that you either return the forms which were sent to your school or email the contacts to us.

We are endeavouring to have an up to date list to update you on relevant issues as they arise.

Connie Carolan – Hon. General Secretary, PACCS.
