It is essential to the community of the P.A. that parents volunteer to take an active part and become Committee Members at some stage throughout their child's education in Multose. An A.G.M. is usually held in September to explain the function of the P.A. and to elect a new committee for the following year. It can be a useful way for new parents to get to know the parents of the school.

P.A Quiz night
It was full house at the family quiz last night. It was wonderful to see so many people supporting the PA fundraiser, over €1,000 was raised! Thank you also to those who made a donation even though they were unable to attend. Our gratitude goes to Centra for sponsoring the prizes. The Trident Hotel was a great venue and the staff had prepared the room perfectly. They donated a bottle of Prosecco to the raffle. Our quiz winners were Team Brandes with a score of 54. It was a nail biting finale, requiring a tie break round to decide 2nd place. Team Gault/Brown emerged in 2nd place and Team Harte came 3rd. Well done to the many “performers” who entertained everyone between rounds.
