Parents Association

The Parents Association work with the Principal and staff to promote good relations between parents and the school community. This ensures parents are represented in matters which relate to their children and are involved in decision making processes affecting the school.


The role of parent associations as set down in the Education Act 1998 is 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."


Membership of St. Vincent's Parents Association is open to every parent in the school from Junior Infants to Sixth Class. Activities are planned and reviewed at regular meetings and matters relating to the school are dicussed in a relaxed environment. Being active in the Parents Association gives parents an opportunity to become more involved in the life of the school and working together in this way connects home and school in a very positive way. New members are very welcome and offers of help in running some of the school events are greatly appreciated.

A number of events and activities are organised each year to raise funds for the extra curricular activities the children enjoy. 


Activities organised in the past by the parents association have been:

  • Coffee Mornings
  • Class quizzes for children from 1st to 6th Class
  • No Uniform days
  • After Church Reception for families of girls on their Communion Day
  • Santa visits

The Parents Association hold an AGM at the start of each school year and all parents are invited. This is a good way to meet other association members or raise any issues you may have.


They really need lots of help to continue this great work for the benefit of the wonderful children of St. Vincent's. For more information on joining the Parents Association contact Aedamar ní Shiochrú at 021 4399896.
