THE ROLE OF THE PARENTS ASSOCIATION...

 

Provision is made in the Education Act 1998 to allow parents of students of a school to set up a Parents Association. The Act states that:

The parents of students of a recognised school may establish and maintain from among their number, a parents' association for the school and membership of that association shall be open to all parents of students of that school.

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 operate effectively as a Parents Association you need to have mechanisms in place whereby you can establish the views of the parents and pupils on matters relating to the school. In this way you can select activities that will promote parental and student involvement

UPDATE: (June 2015)
We have a very active and committed parents association in Oaklands Community College. Our annual Christmas Concert has been a very successful fund raiser. Other ways we fund raised were bag packing, both at the local Dunnes and Tesco stores in the town. This summer a parent of a student in the school, Maria Phelan, is fund raising and participating in the Women's Mini Marathon. We wish her well on the day, and also convey our thanks to her on behalf of all parents in the school.

Since 2014 we have provided 6 computers to the computer room. A set of basket ball jeserys for the girls team, 6 picnic benches for the students to enjoy their lunches in the fine weather outside. We have donated a cheque to the music department to kit out the music room with much needed musical instruments. Buses were partly subsidised for this years trips to Northern Ireland for the Leaving Certificate History trip, and also for the French trip to Paris for transition year students.

We had no constitution in place, and it is vital that there is one to refer to. We now have cafefully drafted a constitution which will be ready for adoption at the AGM in the autumn of this year.
