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.

Our role in the school

- Build effective partnership between school and the home.
- Maintain communication with the school and keep up to date with school news.

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.
