The Parents Association (PA) is set up by the Board of Management and exists to facilitate infomal communications between parents and the school on day-to-day issues. Areas such as individual pupils or schoolwork are outside their remit.
Each class has two 'reps' who are members of the PA and will communicate questions from parents as well as disseminating information from the school.
The PA also has a role in fundraising for the school to pay for such things as IT equipment that are not subsidized by the Department of Education.
The PA has a Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer who are elected by the parent body. The association holds an AGM each year around November at which time any changes to the class reps are also formalized.
