Compass Annual General Meeting – 7th May, 2016 in Wesley College, Dublin
All Parents from Compass Schools are invited to Wesley College on Saturday 7th May, 2016
Starting at 10.30 am sharp – coffee will be available from 10am.
‘BASE Jumping – Mentoring on the Edge’ – Rev. Nigel Mackey
Reassuring parents and helping to equip them to deal with challenging behaviours and to encourage them in addressing the many issues affecting their young people in school and at home.
We are delighted that Nigel Mackey, the Wesley College Chaplain has once again agreed to come and speak to Compass Parents, to share his vast experience of mentoring teenagers in the face of a rapidly changing world.
As this is also our AGM we ask each school to have their Compass Representative give a 3 minute update from their PTA on what’s been happening at their school in the past year.
The Compass Executive Committee strives to develop and promote the work we do, but we need the help and support of the PTA’s in all our schools. To assist us in our work we need a good flow of information to and from Compass and our schools.
Compass is the parent body representing our schools at national level with Government Departments and all the other Education Stakeholders, so it is vital that each of our schools takes the opportunity to appoint two parents
as your Compass representatives to ensure your schools voice is heard.
We want to welcome as many parents as possible to engage with Compass so please spread the word to the parents at your school so that they can have input and feedback on what’s happening in the Post Primary education which serves their children.
So get involved – bring this message back to your PTA – new ideas are always welcome
We hope that as many parents as possible from Compass affiliated schools can attend and we look forward to seeing you at Wesley College. School lunch will be available free of charge at 1.30pm (Please contact the Secretary on firstname.lastname@example.org to advise how many will attend from your school and if they wish to stay for lunch.
We extend our thanks to the Principal Mr Chris Woods for facilitating the A.G.M.
