School Community Association

22-February-18

As chairperson of the Firhouse ETSS School Community Association (SCA) Committee, I would like to welcome you all.

The Firhouse ETSS SCA functions like a Parents Association in other schools, however our aim is to be more more inclusive and reflective all aspects of the wider community of our school - including Board of Management members, teaching staff and any interested members of the Firhouse community. All parents are considered members of the SCA and for those interested in being more involved, we have a Committee and meet approximately once a month during the school year. The role of the SCA Committee is to work alongside the school principal, team and Board of Management to bridge the gap between home and school. Our goal is to enhance your child’s education and experience of learning through the school. The SCA committee is a positive link/liaison between the school and parents/guardians of the children who attend it.

The SCA have planned and organised some fun events for the school community in the last two years - highlights have included a bake sale and raffle during the 1st Year Student Progress Meetings in 2020, pancakes for the students on Pancake Tuesday in 2020 and virtual events such as a Zoom/Kahoot family quiz and Bingo Bops in the first half of 2021. In December 2020, parents, students and teachers were involved in providing handmade cards and lavender pouches to each resident in the local Sally Park Nursing Home.

We are looking forward to growing the SCA in coming school year - to continue to come up with fundraising ideas for the school and other ways we can help the wider community. We would love for any interested new parents to join us - our first meeting will be in early September and further information on how to get involved will be sent when the students have started back to school.

Thanks,

Deirdre Doyle (3rd Year parent), Chairperson of the Firhouse ETSS SCA
