Parents Association

      Thanks to everyone for supporting the Neven Maguire Fundraiser on the 10th of March. It was a great success and we hope you enjoyed the night.

What is the Parents’ Association?

        • The Parent Association is the structure through which parents/guardians in a school can work together for the best possible education for their children.
        • The Education Act, 1998 sets down the role of the parent association.
        • The Parent Association works with the principal, staff and the board of management to build effective partnership of home and school.
        • Educational research on the involvement of parents in schools shows that children achieve higher levels when parents and teachers work together.
        • The Parent Association can advise the principal and Board of Management on policy issues and incidents that may require a review of school policy, e.g. Bullying, Safety, Homework, Enrolment, Behaviour problems etc.
        • Parent Associations can suggest and/or organise extra-curricular activities.
        • The Parent Association is a support for parents in the school.
        • The Parent Association can invite speakers to address the parents on issues which are topical or relevant.
        • The Parent Association is not a forum for complaint against either an individual teacher or parent. The Complaints Procedure is the mechanism for this.
