Parents and Committees

Parents

 

Parents Association

At the beginning of each school year, parents elect representatives to form the Committee of the Parents’ Association.  This Committee is important as it ensures good communication between parents and the school authorities.  The committee is involved in the formulation of school policies.

The committee organises fund raising events each year and uses the funds to develop amenities and to purchase additional equipment for the school.  The work of the Parents’ Association is greatly appreciated.

 

Information Evenings

Information evenings are held for parents/guardians of incoming first year students, Leaving and Junior Certificate students to inform them of the programme of events for the year, the importance of meeting deadlines for projects etc. and to emphasise the necessity of good attendance, attention to homework and study as well as the need for effort and co-operation.

 

Parent /Teacher Meetings

Regular Parent-Teacher meetings are held to allow parents/guardians an opportunity to discuss their son/daughter’s progress.  Every effort is made through parent programmes and lectures to help parents take an active interest in their child’s education.

Parents are always welcome in our school and they can be assured that we are always delighted to see them.  Without the interest and co-operation of parents the best efforts of the school can be in vain.

2 Teacher Representatives

3 VEC Representatives

2 Parent Representatives

Secretary to the Board: School Principal

 

The board of management meets on five occasions during the school year and is instrumental in the development of the school policies, curriculum provision and facilities.
