ABOUT THE PARENTS ASSOCIATION
The St. Colmcille’s Parents’ Association supports the Junior and Senior schools’ mission and strategic direction and builds community through active parent engagement, ongoing communication and strong partnerships.
What We Do
All parents of children attending St. Colmcille’s schools are members of the Parents Association. Our Committee is elected at the AGM, which is held in September each year.
We meet once a month to plan our upcoming events and to discuss relevant issues and agenda items. The four Parent Representatives on the Board of Management of the schools are also members of the Committee, so there is close liaison between parents and school management.
We also have regular meetings with the Principals of both schools to discuss activities that are of concern to parents, children and their teachers.
We do not get involved with disputes. Both the Junior and Senior school have a complaints procedure which we refer parents to if an issue arises. However, if there is an issue which relates to the health and safety of the entire school body, then we can certainly bring it to the attention of the school authorities.
