School Community Events

For a relatively small school LRNS is a busy place! The PTA has an important role in fostering and promoting a unique community spirit among the school's families and staff. 

We support the staff as and when a need arises including grounds maintenance, weeding and general clear out once a year, providing technical assistance in getting this website in place in June 2013. 

We also provide adhoc advice from our own professional experience, technical assistance and administrative supports as requested. 


Annual School Community Events:

September: Sports day

Sports day takes place in mid-September in the Phoenix Park. Games are run by the PTA and families attend for the games, but also to enjoy a social afternoon and informal picnic.

                  

2011 Sports Day

        

October: Autumn Family day

Once pupils have had a chance to settle in we organise an Autumn Family day at the school in mid-October. This an Autumn/Halloween themed afternoon of fun for pupils and their siblings. 

November: Wine tasting

November brings the French wine tasting which is a relaxed social evening for school families and friends. The wine tasting is organised by school parents Alain Delhomme and Fionnuala Kennedy of http://www.frenchwines.ie   Alain chooses 6 wines to taste, three red and three white. He also provides some delicious charcuterie and cheeses - French of course!


February: Pub quiz

There is a breather until February when the annual Pub quiz takes place in Hedigan's Brian Boru. 

This event is a fundraiser - you are encouraged to bring friends and sell tickets but it is mainly a fun night. It's also a chance to get to know people you might only pass at the school gate.


April: Spring Fair

The Spring Fair is the event that adults and children look forward to the most. It is the school's main fundraising event and makes a substantial contribution to the school's coffers. 

The energy and commitment of the PTA and wider parent body, the children and staff is an example of how LRNS can work so well. 


June: New Parent Information Evening and Coffee Morning

The PTA presents at the New Parent Information Evening for incoming junior infant parents. It organises a coffee morning get together in mid-June for parents while the "new student" gets acquainted with their new classroom for the following September.
