The Parents Association will facilitate a secondhand book and uniform sale on Saturday 23rd June from 11am to 1pm

Any person who has books/uniforms for sale can come to the school to sell them during this time.

Any person willing to buy second hand books should arrive during this time.


The Parents Association in a school works with the principal, staff and board of management to build effective co-operation and partnership between home and school.

The role of the parent’s association is set down in the Education Act 1998 as follows:
A parents association shall promote the interests of the students in a school in co-operation with the board, principal, teachers and students.

The Education Act also sets out two broad tasks for a parents association which are:
· To advise the Principal or the Board on matters relating to the school
· To adopt a programme of activities which will promote the involvement of parents in the operation of the school, in consultation with the principal.

As a parent or guardian of a child in our school, you are automatically part of the Parents’ Association! Every new academic year we for a new Parents’ Association Committee who work in partnership with the children in the school, the teachers, staff and the Board of Management to create a fun, educational and collaborative culture within our school.

Playing an active role in the school allows you to understand the running of the school and international research has shown that when parents are involved in their child’s education life, their children achieve better outcomes through their school years. It is also a great way to meet new people and make new friends. We encourage you to consider getting involved in any way that you can, we know how busy life can get but the rewards of helping out are huge.
