The College has a very active Parents’ Association with representatives from each part of the catchment area. Various fund raising events are organised throughout the year and the funds raised are used to update facilities at the school.
In addition to these formal structures, parents are always welcome to call to the school to view our facilities or discuss the progress of their children. In addition each year, we have Parent/Teacher meetings when parents and their children of all years except first years are invited to the school to meet all teachers. Meetings for parents of first years are organised in early October to give them an idea of what new subjects involve and ideas on how parents can help with their child’s education. Meetings also take place when students are making important decisions such as choosing subjects for the Junior and Leaving Certificate.
The aims of the Parents’ Association are:
- to represent the views of parents.
- to inform parents of developments in education and in the school.
- to foster co-operation between parents, teachers and school management.
