The Catholic Primary Education Forum of Roscrea aims to help the catholic primary schools of the parish to provide the best education possible by strengthening the links between schools, parents, parish and community thus advancing the personal development, formal learning, and the religious and moral development of the pupils and fostering the catholic ethos of our schools among all staff members and students.
The membership includes the principals of the schools, the chairpersons of the Boards of Management, representatives of the parish council, and the priests of the parish. The chairperson is chosen from outside the membership and is at present Ms. Maeve Healy. The Forum meet a number of times each year and hopes to promote the development of primary education and and help the schools achieve their mission for the pupils and the community.
With generous help of the local conference of the St. Vincent de Paul, the Forum was able to provide significant financial help to the schools for pupil assessments and other important activities. The Forum’s Education Fund, to which the children of this year’s confirmation class are the first contributors, hopes to be a source of further help in the future.
