About the Parents Network on Schooldays.ie
Schooldays.ie recently launched 'The Parents Network' on Schooldays.ie which allows individual parents to communicate with other parents in their childs school year at either primary or secondary level. For a wide variety of reasons, it can be difficult for parents to link up with other parents in their childrens classes. The new Parent Network tool on Schooldays.ie allows parents to make those contacts which can be invaluable in facilitating practical issues such as arranging school runs, sharing childcare, exchanging second hand goods, arranging school social events, exploring homework problems or simply checking out what other parents are doing with regard to specific events, e.g. are you letting your son/daughter go to the local disco this friday?

As part of our new Parents Network communication tool, we are also providing a facility where registered Parents Associations can make announcements to the parents who have joined the Parents Network for their school. Parents Associations may find this tool useful to announce Fundraising events, PA meetings or to seek help from parents on a school related event.
A Parents' Association can uniquely make posts to the 'Parents Association' category of the general school discussions for this school, and allow or disallow responses to those threads. All subscribers to individual year group streams or the general school stream will be informed of any new posts in this category in their 'streams update' email. This will allow a Parents Association to quickly distribute information to subscribed followers of the school. To make this tool as effective as possible it is a good idea to notify parents in the school to join the Parents Network for your school on schooldays.ie so that as many parents as possible receive alerts when new notices are posted.
There is no fee for either Parents Associations or parents using these tools on Schooldays.ie - registration on the site and the joining of the Parents Network are free.
To find out about the registration process for your school's parent's association visit your school's profile page on schooldays.ie and click on the 'Parents Association' tab where you will see the necessary form to complete and submit. To find your school visit either the Primary School Finder or the Secondary School Finder. If you would rather email us directly to register your Parents Association, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
Similar to Parents Association, School Management can also make announcements through the Schooldays.ie website to parents who have joined the school network on the site. Alternatively schools may wish to use the facility to bring relevant information to the attention of prospective parents who may be visiting the school's profile on the Schooldays website. A school wishing to avail of this facility should forward an email request from the Principal or Vice-Principal of the school. On verification of the email, the school will be issued with login details to facilitate access to the system. There is no fee for this service.
