Parents and Friends
Parents and Friends of Cookstown Primary School’ is made up of parents, staff, retired staff, friends and local business people who come together to organise a wide variety of events which raise invaluable sums of money for the benefit of our school and its pupils.
Through its activities, the group aims to :
- develop more extended relationships between the staff, parents and others associated with the school;
- engage in activities which support the school and benefit the education of the pupils attending it;
- provide, and assist in, the provision of facilities for the school and
encourage parents and friends to support the school, and school activities, as well as cultural, social and recreational activities among pupils, parents and teachers.
A committee, which administers the affairs of the association, is elected at the group’s Annual General Meeting, but the association is much more than just a committee. If you are a new parent or teacher you will get a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction out of either supporting the events that we are organising or by helping to organise and run them.
Why not come along and join in the fun ? We are always looking for fresh blood and new ideas!
Our children have been very fortunate to benefit from a very generous donation from the Parents & Friends’ Association. We have purchased a new set of musical instruments as our old ones were a little tired and outdated to say the least! We are SO thankful to the Parents & Friends for their generosity and the children have really enjoyed experimenting with the new instruments……..Mrs Gillis even had a turn! We think she’s trying to be the ‘Dame Evelyn Glennie’ of CPS and turning her hand to playing the glockenspiel!! Sincere thanks to the P & F association. The children will hopefully have many years of enjoyment from these new instruments.
