The Education Act 1988 provides legislation for the existence, recognition and purpose of a Parent Association.

Section 26(1) of the Act states:

“The parents of students of a recognised school may establish, and maintain from among their number, a parents’ association for that school and membership of that association shall be open to all parents of students of that school.”

The Role of a Parent Association

Although the Parent Association may organise many activities, these activities should all assist the association to achieve its two main roles within the school:

1. To work in partnership with the Principal, Board of Management and the whole school community for the betterment of the children of the school.

2. To support and empower parents to be active in the best interests of their children’s educational lives.

Membership of a Parent Association

All parents of children in the school are members of the Parent Association. These parents elect a committee to work on their behalf from one year to another.

Final Words

We would love to see more parents getting involved. New members are more than welcome but even if you cannot commit to the monthly committee meetings, we will always welcome your help, input and ideas. As our school motto says

"Ar Aghaidh Linn Le Chéile"
