Mission Statement Our mission is to enhance the school experience for families by promoting active volunteer participation in the Parents Association and by sponsoring activities that will make our children’s experience at the St Kilian’s an enriching and rewarding one. We also help to facilitate communication among parents, the school and Board of Management.
At St Kilian’s School we have a very active and successful Parents Association and we are very proud to play an important part in the great team spirit and positive environment that exists here.
As parents of children in the school you are automatically members of the parents association and will be kept informed of events throughout the year through mediums such as the school newsletter, notes home and our Facebook page –
