Who are the Parents’ Association and what do they do?

The Parents’ Association exists to enhance our children’s experience at school. All parents are automatically members of the Association. There are two parents on the Board of Management of the school and we are affiliated with the National Parents’ Council.

There is a really positive and productive working relationship between the Parents’ Association (PA) and the teaching staff at the school.  The PA raises money for the school through a series of fundraising events throughout the year. The money raised is used for providing resources for teaching staff, subsidising school tours, assisting with sport activities, educational workshops and visits to cultural and educational events.pa

Our other roles include supporting the school with environmental projects, namely Green Schools and giving support to the teachers where needed.

A new Parents’ Association Committee for 2019/2020 has been established but we’re always happy to hear from parents who’d like to be involved or take an active role in raising the funds to support our excellent teaching staff to enrich our children’s education.
