Secretary’s Farewell

Time to Say Goodbye

There comes a time when we must say goodbye and alas this is my time as Secretary of our Parent's Association.

I must really say for the past five years I have never got as much pleasure in doing a job as this one. I am truly grateful to so many people, for without your help, patience and support I would not have been able to carry out my duties to the full.

There are too many to mention but I do have to mention a few and to the rest of you A BIG SPECIAL THANKS. To Ron, John & Celia, for starting me off on the right path. To Bridie & Breda, for your professional courtesy and guidance at all times. To the various teachers for your kindness and support. To the many speakers whom I have dealt with on behalf of the Association over the years. To An Garda Siochana, especially Ann Mc Donnell in Galway and Angela Mullooley in Roscommon, for all you support and advice with the Gate Collections each year. Connie Carolin from Paccs and Sandra form NYPcc. To our Principal, James Duignan, for whom I would have been lost without his guidance, support and advice and to Eileen Gildea for your great support also.

Last but not least, to all our past & present members - what can I say.. thank you are just words but you know it’s more than that. We have a fantastic and active Association and I would encourage all parents at some stage to join and be a part of it. I have made great friends and it’s that friendship that made my job so easy with teamwork & communication as the secret to our success. I shall miss the Association but I know it will continue its success under the baton of our Chairperson, Howard Simpson. Thank you also Howard, you’ll have some peace now!!!

Finally, a warm welcome to my successor, Sheila Feeney. I hope you all will give her the same support and guidance as I received.

Ann Gunning.
