what is happening in our school.

Garden Meeting. The next meeting will be held on Friday 9th February at 9am.
All welcome.

Coffee Morning & Bake Sale – The PTA committee will be hosting a coffee
morning and bake sale on Wednesday 14th of February. This Valentine’s Day
themed event will begin with a coffee morning for parents/guardians at 9am
and will be followed by a bake sale where the students can bring in €2 and will
be allowed to pick some treats. We would greatly appreciate if any budding
bakers could bake something for the bake sale. These contributions can be

PTA AGM – The PTA AGM will take place on Wednesday 21st of February at
7.30pm in the main hall. The AGM is for all members of the PTA and will
include updates on activities of the PTA committee throughout the year, such
as the winter fair, etc.
Each parent and guardian of children attending Wicklow Educate Together N.S.
are a part of the PTA and coming to the AGM is a great opportunity to hear
more about what is going on within the school and opportunities to get
involved. Nominations to join the PTA committee will be accepted until Friday
9th of February. A parent or guardian can nominate themselves by emailing
[email protected].
