Parent Teacher Association

At Hollymount we have a strong and dynamic Parent Teacher Association (PTA).  Parents and staff work together to provide fund raising activities, social functions and educational evenings, including children's discos, cinema night, cake sales, quiz nights and Christmas and summer fairs. The PTA raises significant amounts of money each year for the school, funding resources which provide a wider and richer experience for the pupils.

All parents are automatically members of the PTA.  The PTA is a registered Charity No: 290402.  The PTA works extremely hard for the school and welcomes all members who would like to lend a hand.

Meetings (Coffee Mornings) of PTA Members and Committee Members are held at the start of each term.  

This year’s AGM will be held one evening in April.  Date to be advised.  

The PTA communicate directly with parents/guardians using the Classlist app available from Apple Store or Google Play.  It is also available as a webapp at www.classlist.com.  At least one parent/guardian of each child should register on the app.  This app is also used by Class reps to communicate important information from class teachers.  Parents/guardians can use it to communicate with each other.
