Parents' Council

The Parents’ Association is the structure through which parents in a school can work together for the best possible education for their children. The Parent’s Association works with the principal, staff and the Board of Management to build an effective relationship between the home and school. Collaboration between the home and school is important because with positive and active partnership the student gets the best that education can offer.
