Parents Association

Next Meeting: TBC

At the Holy Family Secondary School

All parents/guardians warmly welcomed


Dear Parents and Guardians,

It is 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 one Monday 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.
  • 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 are delighted to be in a position to hold the meeting in the school this year after two years of Zoom meetings. If you cannot attend the meeting but would like to be included on a mailing list, you may email

We look forward to seeing you.

Caoimhe O’Connor- Chairperson

DCU Fuse Programme

This year 2nd year students will be participating in the FUSE Post-Primary AntiBullying and Online Safety Programme, developed by the Anti-Bullying Centre (ABC) at Dublin City
University. This is a wonderful opportunity for our school to partner with the Anti-Bullying Centre, DCU. The Centre hosts the UNESCO Chair on bullying and cyberbullying and the Irish Research Observatory on Cyberbullying, Cyberhate and Online Harassment.

It is designed to support the wider SPHE/RSE/Wellbeing curricula in schools. At the heart of the FUSE
programme is the aim of building capacity in schools themselves to tackle bullying and online safety issues and
to empower children and adolescents to understand their own behaviour, be able to recognise bullying and
online safety risks and be confident in how to report and seek support when they need it.
The FUSE programme consists of four mandatory workshops namely:
1. Bullying and the Importance of Noticing
2. Cyberbullying and the Importance of Noticing
3. Online Safety – Privacy and Sharing Online
4. Online Safety – Cyber Security Awareness

The aim of the programme is to increase the confidence of children in Noticing, Responding and Reporting
bullying and online safety issues. Please see the letter attached.


An an initiative for Anti-Bullying, DCU Anti-Bullying Centre, have made a guide available for parents on the below websites,  entitled “Understanding Bullying and Cyberbullying: A Guide on How to Support Your Child”.
