Role of a Parent Association
- The Parent Association works with the Principal, staff and the Board of Management to build effective partnership between home and school.
- The Parent Association can advise the Principal and Board of Management on policy issues and incidents that may require a review of school policy, e.g. Bullying, Safety, Homework, Enrolment, Behaviour problems etc.
- The Parent Association can suggest and/or organise extra-curricular activities.
- The Parent Association is a support for parents in the school.
- The Parent Association can invite speakers to address the parents on issues which are topical or relevant.
- The Parent Association is not a forum for complaint against either an individual teacher or parent. The Complaints’ Procedure is the mechanism for this.
- The Parent Association helps to promote the school community by celebrating special occasions e.g. First Communion, Confirmation, Grandparents’ Day etc.
- The Parent Association organises events to raise much needed funds required to enhance the children’s school experience.
