We meet on the first Tuesday of every month at 7.45 pm, to discuss issues and projects of importance to the school. We also organise vital fundraising activities throughout the year. Any parent is welcome to be on the committee and election of new members takes place at the AGM, which is held every October. Minutes of our meetings are emailed to the committee members before the next meeting, so that issues can be dealt with and discussed more efficiently.

The Parents’ Association is affiliated to PACCS, which is the Parents’ Association body for all Community and Comprehensive schools. Our Parent Representatives attend their meetings, including their AGM, during the year.

Through PACCS, the Parents’ Association is also linked with the National Parents’ Council for Post-Primary schools (the NPCpp) and our representatives attend their workshops and conferences on behalf of the parents of PCS.
