Parent's Fundraising Executive.
Scoil Íosa is very fortunate to have a supportive and proactive Parents group. Since 2011 the committee has become actively engaged in working towards the development of suitable facilities to provide for the childrens recreational and extra curricular programme. In doing so the committee has organised a number of very successful fund raising initiatives including the annual Table Quiz, Golf Classic , a number of raffles for the children and the school community and of course the very popular 'Splash the Teacher' activity at the Annual Abbey Pattern. To date the money raised has renovated and extended the infants playground , has facilitated the development of the school sports fields to the rear of the school, has developed and equipped the school hall for basketball, indoor soccer and badminton and most recently has purchased a number of iPads and associated peripherals for use with the children. New members from among our parent body are encouraged to become involved in our activities.
