Whitefriars Parents’ Association – Mark Murphy

This dedicated, community minded, generous and warm group of people have one aim : to provide opportunities for our community to connect with each other through a variety of events and opportunities. This year our WPA have presented some of the most enjoyable and upifting events in support of this aim. From our Trivia and Comedy nights to their support with House Gathering Masses, Mother’s and Father’s day Breakfast amongst many other things. The WPA are a constant presence in our school bringing with them a wonderful sense of hospitality and positivity.
