Over the next few weeks, we’ll be sending out more communication about donations and looking for helpers to work shifts at the the event, set up & clean up. The strong tradition of parental involvement in this great and fun event is what makes it such a special day in our Fundraising calendar.

But to make this day so successful, we need volunteers to help PLAN the event.  We will be having kick off meeting on Friday, May 5th at 9 am in the shared area. Please come along with your good ideas.

We are also seeking raffle prizes!
Do you or a relation own a business that would like to offer a product or service to be included in our raffle?  Beauty products, services and gift vouchers to local merchants are always a hit. Any unwanted, new items at home which could be
included would be very welcome!  In exchange, your info will appear on the poster, the school site and called out at our event!   Please get in touch today.

If you can’t make this meeting yet have ideas and/or want to be involved, please contact us at Northbayfundraising@gmail.com or text 085 871 5312.

Garda Vetting for volunteers

Hi everyone, Our school thrives on volunteering. Some parents volunteer from time-to-time and others have the time to come in regularly. If you volunteer on an ongoing basis or expect to do so over the next few years you will now have to undergo vetting. We do not want to say no to a volunteer due to delays in vetting so we are happy to arrange vetting for prospective volunteers.

The process is now very straightforward.

1. Contact Sally by email (principal@northbay.ie) to indicate that you wish to be vetted, what you are doing, or intend to do, and how often. Occasional helpers do not have to be vetted but volunteers who come in regularly to help in a variety of ways will need vetting.

2.  You will receive a response with vetting documents and our policy attached. Sally will have to meet you to review your form and to verify your identity. This is then sent to Educate Together and they follow up from there with electronic vetting.

3. The outcome is posted to the school and we can let you know at that stage that you are covered.
