January 2018 - Cake Sale

The cake sale at St Colmcille's Parish Hall raised £460 for school funds and saw a spectacular array of home baked treats available. The parish hall was bustling with customers enjoying a cup of tea and chat and a treat! The PTA would like to thank everyone who supported this event.

Blues & Boogie
A chance for parents to let the hair down and boogie to the sounds of the Box Car Blues Brothers, this fantastic evening raised vital funds for school equipment and facilities.

Cash for Clobber
The Cash for Clobber scheme encourages children, parents and guardians to contribute their used or unwanted clothes, shoes, handbags, hats, scarves, bed linen and curtains. It is run by Cookstown Textile Recyclers who sponsor the Eco-Schools Waste Topic. Children are invited to bring their unwanted textiles to the school as a way to earn money for the school and contribute to a greener, cleaner future. Find out more at

Community Fun Day 10th June 2017
The Community Fun Day is the most popular event in the PTA calendar. It’s a great opportunity for the school to open its doors to the wider community. Everyone can come along and try their hand at some traditional games as well as maybe trying something new. There’s a BBQ serving hot dogs and burgers as well as music, stalls selling popcorn and other sweet treats. 

Summer School Discos
On the 22nd June the PTA organised two discos as a treat for the P7's who are moving on from St Joseph's.
