Parent Teacher Association

The Parents Teacher Association represents all of the parents in the school. The aims of the Parent Teacher 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


PTA Members

Class Reps

The Election of the Parent Teacher Association committee

The members of the committee will be elected each year at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Parent Association. Each member will be elected for one year. At the AGM all committee members step down, but they can be re-elected as long as they continue to be eligible to serve, that is as long as they continue to be a parent or guardian of a child in the school.

The committee will ensure that 50% of places are available for new members each year.

Parents’ representatives elected to the Board of Management have an option to automatically become members of the committee (if they want to), but will not hold an officer position on the Parent Teacher Association committee.

No member of the committee will hold the same officer position for more than three consecutive years.
