The Parent’s Association plays an important role throughout the school year. We support the School Principal, Staff and Board of Management in carrying out their activities. The Parent’s Association plays an important role in organising many activities for the school, for example, Halloween party, a social gathering after the Christmas Carol Service, etc.
Without the parent’s help and support these activities would be lost. The role of the Parent’s Association is above all a group of parents supporting one another on their children’s journey through school. The Parent’s Association Constitution can be found in the downloads section of the school’s website.
The Parent’s Association Committee is a voluntary group made up of parents from the school. On the Committee are a Chairperson, Secretary, Treasures, two Sport and Social officers and P.R.O. Two Parent Representatives also sit on the Board of Management. All other parents are automatically members of the Parents’ Association and are welcome to attend and participate at meetings, approximately three times per school year. The A.G.M. is generally held in September at which the parents are asked to volunteer for the new school year. Then the six volunteers along with the two parent representatives will meet and each position will be divided out.
Meetings and Newsletter
There is an average of three Parent’s Association meetings per year and three information letters/newsletters will go out throughout the year. The meetings usually coincide with
calendar events such as Halloween, Christmas Carol Service, Confirmation, Communions, etc. The aim of the meetings is to provide information to parents relating to school matters and encourage feedback. The newsletters will also be sent out with important information and dates coming up.
