What is the Parents' Association?
The Parents’ Association is the structure through which parents in the school can work together for the best possible education of their children. The Parents’ Association works with the Principal, staff and Board of Management to build an effective partnership between home and school. This relationship is extremely beneficial to the children because, with a positive and active partnership, they will get the best that primary education can offer.
