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 Education Act, 1998 sets down the role of the parent association.

The Parent Association works with the principal, staff and the board of management to build effective partnership of home and school.

All parents of pupils in the school are part of the parents association.
