Parents and Friends Association

Our Parents & Friends group offers an opportunity for parents to meet and share their experiences and concerns together.

Originally the Parents & Friends Group of New Court School was set up to support fundraising when the school had large debts and unsuitable accommodation. Over the years many parents have been involved and supported  the school during it’s different phases of growth and development. Grants from the Department of Education increased and we now have an amazing new campus with excellent facilities for our students.  The need for fundraising had diminished, although in these recessionary times we may need to look again  at fundraising to supplement the reduced grant funding from the Department of Education.

However, the main emphasis of the Parents and Friends Group continues to be one of support. We see the aims of this group as follows:

  • Friendship – of parents sharing similar experiences
  • Support – for the students, families and school as we work together.
  • Sharing of expertise and experiences.
  • Accessing relevant information – through talks.

On several occasions through the school year, parents and guardians are invited to the school to attend informal coffee-mornings and meetings. In New Court School we have found attendance to be higher at day time rather than  night time meetings. Sometimes these meetings are informal social get-togethers and other times we schedule speakers to give us information on relevant topics.

All parents/guardians/relations of the students are welcome to attend and we are very happy to take on any suggestions or ideas for future talks/events.

Sincere thanks to the parents who help co-ordinate and organise these enjoyable events. If you would like to get more information about the Parents and Friends Group please contact the school office for the phone numbers of Parents Group organizer.
