Parents Association

Information for Junior Infant Parents

Introduction to the Parents Association
The Parents’ Association (PA) works to promote the interests of the students in the school in co-operation with the board, principal, teachers and students. The PA is the structure through which parents in the school can work together for the best possible education of their children.

1. The PA may advise the Principal or the Board on matters relating to the school.

2. The PA may adopt a programme of activities that will promote the involvement of parents in the school, in consultation with the principal.

3. The Parent Association can invite speakers to address the parents on issues which are topical or relevant.

To do these tasks well it is important that parents use the PA to express their views on school policy, matters relating to the school, and on the kinds of activities that encourage parental involvement and partnership for the benefit of the students.

The Parent Association is not a forum for complaint against either an individual teacher or parent. The Complaints Procedure is the mechanism for this.

If you wish to contact a member of the Parents’ Association on any matter, please find contact details of committee members and class representatives below.
