Here are some of our recommendations:

Parents Association

Our Parents Association is a voluntary group of parents (elected by parents) which support and assist our school, providing an important partnership between home and our school. We work closely with the pupils, parents, teachers, Board of Management and other groups.

Our aim is to fundraise and provide additional funds/activities for the pupils in Conna NS. We have a dedicated Facebook page, Conna NS Parents Association, for the parents and guardians of children attending Conna NS which we use to share information on events and activities in the school. We also have a dedicated WhatsApp Group for parents and guardians which also allows us to communicate with parents.

If you would like to know anymore about our very proud Parents Association, or would like to get involved, please email us at connansparentsassociation@gmail.com
