Children gain the most out of their time at school when home and school work in partnership. This partnership is highly valued at Carrickfergus Model and we are fortunate to have such supportive parents. Our parents are very supportive of attendance, appearance and supervision of homework. They also support us when we ask our pupils to dress up for a special occasion or day with their class or if they need to bring an item to school to assist with a project. In addition, many parents involve themselves in a voluntary capacity to assist in the life of our school. Formally this is done under the auspices of the P.T.A. Parents also take an active interest in many of our school activities such as Christmas events, concerts, and Sports Days and are extremely generous in supporting both charity and fundraising initiatives.
