The Federation of Catholic Secondary Schools Parent Associations (FED-CSSPA) Annual Conference 2018

The Annual Conference 2018 of Fed-CSSPA will be held on March 3rd 2018 in the Maldon Hotel Portlaoise.

Link to Full Agenda

This year we are pleased to be joined by Mr Ferdia Kelly who is currently the Chief Executive Officer of the Catholic Schools Partnership.  As a national organisation, Fed-CSSPA has always found Mr Kelly to be very supportive of parental involvement.  Mr Kelly will be sharing with parents the common topic at many of this year’s conferences – Understanding and Living the Ethos in our Catholic Schools.

We are also joined by Ms Jackie O’ Dowd from the Science Foundation Ireland who will talk to parents about the future available to their students through engagement with science subjects.

Colman Noctor joins us to address a very current issue – building resilience in our children.  He will also address the stresses and anxieties brought about by the modern era of technology.

We also have a number of exhibitors that we believe will interest parents.

Lunch may be booked at registration at the subsidised rate of €5 per person.

This conference is free to attend for 2 parents from your school – registration is through eventbrite and details and links are available on our website www.fcsspa.ie/events – our Facebook page.

The National Parents Council post primary (NPCpp) has, for a long time now, pursued our policy to give Parents a strong voice in the education of our children.

The Department of Education and Skills has now proposed some changes to the legislation in our educational system – They are introducing a Parent and Student Charter Bill 2016 which will determine the parents’ role in education for many years to come.

This Bill will require every school to consult with and involve parents and students more in the running of the school, and to publish and operate a Parent and Student Charter.

NPCpp welcomes this positive step and the recognition it brings to parental involvement in the education of our children.

Minister Richard Bruton has directed that parents be consulted through NPCpp and we have created the attached survey to ensure that we can properly reflect what you would like to see being implemented through the Charter.

Your thoughts and ideas are crucial! So please take a few minutes (10-15 max) to complete and return your response.

Thank you!
