School Parents Association
Who we are:
The current Clonmoney NS Parents Association is comprised of the School Principal / Teaching Staff Member / Parents or guardians who all offer their time freely and act on a voluntary basis.
All parents of children attending Clonmoney NS are entitled and encouraged to participate as members of the Parents Association.
The Clonmoney NS Parent Association Committee meets every month during school term.
New parents are actively encouraged to join the Committee every year.
If you don’t want to sit on the committee full time but would like to help out at various occasions, please feel free to contact us. Next year we are planning on organizing sub-committees for some of the main events.
In order that the Parents’ Association Committee is truly representative of all children from Junior Infants to 6th class, representatives are sought from each class.

Role of the Parents Association:
The Parent Association is the structure through which parents and guardians in the school can work together for the best possible education for their children.
The Education Act, 1998 sets down the role of the parent association.
The Parent Association works with the principal, staff and the board of management to build effective partnership of home and school.
Educational research on the involvement of parents in schools shows that children achieve higher levels when parents and teachers work together.
The Parent Association can advise the principal and Board of Management on policy issues and incidents that may require a review of school policy, e.g. Bullying, Safety, Homework, Enrollment, Behaviour problems etc.
Parent Associations can suggest and/or organise extra-curricular activities
The Parent Association is a support for parents in the school.
The Parent Association can invite speakers to address the parents on issues which are topical or relevant.
**The Parent Association is not a forum for complaint against either an individual teacher or parent.
The Complaints Procedure is the mechanism for this**
