Did you know …..

The McCarthy Association is a unique and proactive group. We not only have our regular annual fund raisers (see Fundraising section) but we also act as a parent support group and a consultative group.

Did you know …..

We understand that some parents are reluctant to attend meetings for fear of being lumbered with a position on the committee or getting roped into volunteering!

Did you know …..

We do not believe in targeting new parents to the group as instant volunteers. We appreciate that everyone is busy, have different interests and commitments and that not everyone wants to be that involved. However, we are always happy to see new faces at our meetings.

We have a section in the newsletter each fortnight that gives you information about upcoming items for discussion at the next meeting, new initiatives, fund raising and items of interest. This can be found in the Parent Information section.
