Supports for Parents
National Parents Council Primary
The parent association is the structure through which parents in a school can work together for the best possible education for their children. The parent association works with the principal, staff and the board of management to build effective partnership between the home and school. This is important to establish because with a positive and active partnership in place the child gets the best that primary education can offer.
