Drugs Awareness Talk for Parents



Dear Parent Association Chairperson,


Each year, the Parents Association in the Patrician Secondary School invite a speaker to our school for our ‘Annual Lecture’.


This free event comprises of a talk to all parents in the school for approximately one hour.  It is part of our contribution to the Newbridge Community and is a very popular event. We would like to extend this invitation to the parents of your school.


Sgt. Ciaran Bruce from the Kildare drug division, based in Kildare Garda Station, will be our guest speaker. His knowledge of drug and substance abuse in our community will help empower parents to identify the danger signs and symptoms in teenagers in our community.


We would be delighted if you would support our lecture and we look forward to meeting you on Thursday 14th at 8.00pm.



Yours sincerely,


Elaine Murphy     


Parents Association.

Dear Parents and Guardians,

It’s the start of a new school year, therefore we would like to invite you to the AGM of the Parents Association of the Holy Family Secondary school.  The AGM will be followed by a short Parents Association meeting.

As parents and guardians of the students attending the Holy Family Secondary School, you automatically belong to the Parents Association.  The Association meets on the second Monday of each month at 7.30pm in the school. 

Our role in the school

  • Review and advice, as required, with the principal and staff on school policies.
  • Fundraising for the benefit of the school, e.g. Christmas raffle and bag pack.
  • Build effective partnership between school and the home.
  • Maintain communication with the school and keep up to date with school news.
  • We seek to support and promote the wellbeing of the school, the students and each other.

We are always looking for fresh ideas to bring to our school community and parents are one of our greatest resources.  With that in mind we are always looking for new members to join our association.  We would encourage you to come and get involved.

We look forward to seeing you.
