A vibrant Parents’ Association/Council is in existence since 1989. Membership is open to all parents/guardians of all pupils enrolled. It promotes the interests of the pupils in co-operation with the Board of Management, Principal and staff.
Parents as a group have a wide range of talents, abilities and skills that have the potential to enrich and extend the educational opportunities provided for pupils.
Since its inception the Parents Association has made a very worthwhile contribution to the school community. It is a structure through which parents can work together for the best possible education for their children. The PA works with the principal, staff and the BOM to build effective partnership between home and school.
