Parents’ Association

The Parents’ Association is the structure through which parents of pupils in the school can work together with the school for the best possible education opportunities for their children.

The Parents’ Association is affiliated with the National Parents Council (NPC) Primary and works with the principal, staff and representatives from the Board of Management to build an effective partnership between home and school.

While all parents are asked to participate in the running of the Parents’ Association, not all can be involved in the day to day running of the Association. It is for this reason that parents form a committee at the Annual General Meeting. The committee is made up of parents representing the class levels from Junior Infants to Sixth Class. At the first meeting each school year, the Executive positions are filled by election of the committee.

What do we do?

The Parents’ Association made up of the committee and representing parents who meet to discuss some of the following topics:

  • Any School News (school policy and planning)
  • Board of Managements News
  • Safety issues around the school area
  • Up and coming events i.e. communion/confirmation
  • fundraising
  • Any parent issues
