Carysfort National School Parents Association runs several fundraising activities and other events during the year. The funds raised support supplementary programmes that benefit all our children.
Here is a list of some of the activities that the PA undertakes during the school year, although it is not exhaustive. We encourage all parents to try to volunteer for at least one event during the year. Each activity is usually only a commitment of a couple of hours and children love to see their parents participating at school events.
