Rathdown School


The PTA is a lively and engaged group of parent volunteers from across the Senior and Junior Schools, joined by Dermot Dix & Brian Moore. We meet regularly with an objective to fundraise and help build the school community, fostering our inclusive ethos as a Place of Belonging.

In the previous academic year, our work helped to fund updates to the Junior School IT equipment, the refurbishment of the Tennis Courts, the provision of outdoor furniture for both schools, a magician and ice-cream van close of year treat for Junior School, and a host of smaller initiatives. Events included a Hopathon, Drive-in Movie night, Uniform Sale etc.
We also worked with the parents and the girls to create a collage of memories of the past year, which is now hanging in the SS reception. We will be offering this collage for sale as a jigsaw in the coming month, with availability and pricing to be confirmed separately. 
We are looking for volunteers to join the PTA from both schools - if interested please contact the incoming Chair, Caroline O'Reilly on 087-6873910 or email
We also welcome any fundraising or sponsorship ideas, so feel free to make contact with us at any time.

PTA Committee


At the start of each school year, an AGM is held and a PTA Committee is elected. Each elected member serves three years on the committee. Parents, whether on the committee or not, are encouraged to get involved. Comment and feedback is welcomed and can be fed to the committee via their Class Reps or via email
