Parents' Association

In sending their children to our schools parents enter into a partnership with Management and Staff through: 

  • their commitment to the Christian understanding of life so that the values held by parents are supportive of those espoused by the College;
  • their active concern for all aspects of their children’s educational development;
  • their co-operation with the discipline of the school;
  • their support of the College’s various religious, social cultural and sporting activities;
  • their commitment to the financial support of the College through the payment of the yearly fee and through other fund-raising activities which may arise.

All Parents and Guardians of pupils enrolled in the College are automatically members of the Association. The Parents’ Association Committee organises activities aimed at promoting and supporting the role of parents and guardians as the prime educators of their children.  The activities are generally designed to facilitate opportunities for discussion, information and consultation about matters of common and/or topical interest to parents, teachers and pupils of the College.  The ten parents on the committee meet once a month during the school term. The Parents Association is not involved in the Management of the School. If you wish to discuss matters around the management of the school or issues relating to your Son please contact the school on 01-4904621. You can contact the Parents Association directly by email: parentsassociation@terenurecollege.ie
