Parent Association Role
The Education Act, 1998 sets down the role of the Parent Association: The Parent Association works with the principal, staff and the board of management to build effective partnership of home and school.
A Parent Association shall promote the interests of the students in a school in co-operation with the board, principal, teachers and students.
To that end, a Parent Association
- advises the Principal or the Board of Management on matters relating to the school
- adopts a programme of activities which will promote the involvement of parents in the operation of the school, in consultation with the principal.
