Parents Association


Welcome to 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 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, Behaviour problems, Enrolment 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.
