Parents Association

The Woodland NS Parents’ Association is made up of all parents & guardians at the school. The Parents’ Association Committee is formed each year from parent volunteers.

The Parents’ Association Committee works in collaboration with the school management to:

  • Promote the interests of all the students
  • Enhance the learning environment
  • Raise funds for, and contribute to, school initiatives and activities
  • Support community events involving the school and parents

Over the last year or so the Parents’ Committee has organized or contributed to:


  • Encouragement of Traffic Safety in the school grounds
  • The  Loughside \ Woodlands \ Castleshanaghan 5k event
  • The Book Rental Scheme
  • First Communion, Confirmation celebrations, and new parents evening
  • Regular school costs, for example, bus hire fees
  • Social and educational classes: yoga; positive parenting; internet safety

The Parents’ Committee is a voluntary body and relies upon the commitment of its members and the support of the wider parent body and school management to contribute to improving the educational experience of all children at Woodlands NS. Consequently, new members are welcomed at the AGM in the autumn term, to bring fresh energy and new ideas to the committee.

The 2017-2018 committee is comprised of the following members:

Conor Crossan, Chairperson
Claire Mc Donough, Secretary
Kathleen Mc Groarty, Treasurer
Fiona Mc Laughlin
Nuala Carr
Marie Therese Henry
Michael Mulhern
