    The Glenealy School Parent Teacher Association (PTA) would like to take this opportunity to extend a warm welcome to the new and returning families of our community for the new school year. The PTA is dedicated to bringing the Glenealy community together and enriching our students' educational experience. 


    Parents continue to play an integral part in the institution and without their commitment and contribution, the School would not be the success it is today. The Parents committee sits at the very heart of the institution and plays a massive role in bringing our community together and fundraising.

            PTA Membership

            All families with children attending ESF schools automatically become members of that school’s PTA.  There is a subscription fee per family every year which is paid online using the e-payment facility on the VLE. Detailed information will be provided within the first few weeks of the school year. With this fee we support the school by engaging our students in fun and interesting activities and events, financial contributions to school renovations and looking after the wellbeing of the school community. 


            The PTA relies on the contribution of the Glenealy community who donate their skills and time to enhance and upgrade the school’s environment.  We are incredibly grateful for this untiring support and involvement. In recent years, PTA has worked with the school on extensive internal and external renovations and enhancements through various fundraising activities.
