Parent Staff Association (PSA)

About our PSA

In 2018, Broombridge ETNS PSA was established with the aim of bringing parents/carers together with the school to engage in activities that help create the best possible school experience for the pupils, contribute to a nurturing and empowering learning environment and create opportunities for parent/carer involvement in their child’s school life.

The PSA works towards this aim by supporting the Principal, Staff and Board of Management in Broombridge in a number of ways:

  • Organising a range of fundraising events 
  • Participating in reviewing school policies
  • Galvanising parent/carer action groups for projects around the school
  • Engaging parent/carer participation in in-school learning and activities 

PSA Committee 2023/24

Our PSA meets usually once a month to come up with ideas, make decisions and organise events and projects. 

Our current members are:

Faela Stafford 

Aoife Dolan

Nicola Caffrey

Gail Smyth

Dara McHugh

Sara McMahon 

What Do We Do?

We have had many successful initiatives and fundraisers in the past at Broombridge including coffee mornings, fundraisers, informal meet ups, clothing & book swap events, movie days and most importantly our Family Fun Day. All of these initiatives have helped to bring our school community together. 

As always, we welcome and encourage everyone who can give some of their time, or share their ideas, or lend a hand to get ideas off the ground or who can maybe ask for support from their own networks to reach out to the PSA. You can do so through our email –
