Our school is democratically run, but democracy has its price. We do not have the wealth of a church or any other institution behind us. All finance which we need must be raised by the Association. Money is needed in the school, both for current expenditure and for capital investment.
The Board of Management is responsible for the day to day running expenses of the school. These include essential services such as heating, lighting, cleaning and insurance as well as teaching aids and classroom supplies.
The capitation grant from the Department of Education covers less than half of these basic running costs. Parents have been asked to contribute an annual voluntary contribution to make up the shortfall. Parents' generous support will continue to play a vital role every year in ensuring that our children benefit fully from the high quality teaching and learning environment in the school
