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.
The parents association is made-up of:
- Chairperson, Treasurer, Secretary and Under-secretary (3-year term)
- Mother's and Father's nominee to the Board of Management (4-year term)
- Two class reps for each class in the school (2-year term)
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 holds an AGM each year around October at which time any changes to the elected positions are made by those parents present.
