In partnership with School Management, the Board of Management, teachers and students the Parents’ Association objectives are:
To enhance the school experience for families by facilitating communication among parents, students, the School, the Board of Management, and the broader community.
The fostering of good relations between parents, teachers, students and the school authorities.
All parents or legal guardians of students attending the school are automatically members of the Coláiste Pobail Bheanntraí Parents’ Association.
The Education Act 1988 sets out the role of the PA – to work in partnership with the school. Partnership between home and school ensures better outcomes for our children. Research shows that students achieve better results when parents and teachers work together. The Parents Association’s Constitution details how the PA is organised and run.
Each year, an AGM is held, at which a new PA committee is elected. All parents are welcome to AGM’s and notices of same are circulated in advance to parents.
The current Parents Association Committee was elected at the PA AGM on 18th October 2016.
