Parents Council

The Parents Council was established in 1974, and provides support for the Board Of Management, Staff and Pupils.  Our aim is to have each district in the town and surrounding areas represented by one or more parents.

The purpose of our Parents Council is to assist in providing a structure through which the Parents/Guardians can work together with the school. Effective communication between home and school is crucial for the ongoing development and education success of our children, and, as such, we work in co-operation with the B.O.M., Principal, Teachers and Students. 

Aims/Objectives

  • To help all parents feel they have a part to play in the school and a contribution in helping to make their daughters' years in the school a positive time.
  • To represent interests and views of parents.
  • Inform parents of developments and changes in education (now rapidly changing).
  • Promote good relationships between the Principal, Teachers and B.O.M.
  • To help with the provision of lockers, gym equipment etc through fund-raising events.

Assistance is given to;

  • Open day
  • Flag days (2) ensuring that children who go out come back!
  • Graduation Mass (6th Years)
  • Annual Draw
  • School Musical (5th Years)
  • Coffee Morning 

As a member you also can contribute and participate in discussions with the Principal and or Deputy Principal on school policies or even changes that may be taking place, at the meeting and/or assist and organise events.

The current council would actively encourage new members, particularly those who are new to the school (Dads especially welcome). Meetings are held roughly each month but you don’t even have to come to them all! 

We look forward to seeing you soon,

Gráinne Russell,
Chairperson.
