PTA Coffee Mornings
During the first half of the first term the PTA hosted four coffee mornings:
On 29 August we hosted a First Year coffee morning, on 11 September a Second and Third Year coffee morning and on 19 September a Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Year coffee morning
On 6 September the PTA hosted an international Parents' Coffee Morning with a difference. Instead of a general mingle we asked International Parents what they would most like to get out of a coffee morning and they told us they most wanted to meet parents with children in similar years and also to find out more about aspects of College life, about living in Dublin and also about the Irish Education and Examination System.
We duly obliged with mobile phone quizzes and games, with a presentation from PTA Chair Krysia Lynch and also PTA International Parent Liaison Officer HeeJung Lee. One of our international parents Bart, told us about local trips and opportunities to visit Trinity College Dublin. All in all it was a great success and we will try to repeat it next term.
