Purpose and Aims of the Parents Association 
As a parent/guardian of a student attending Coolmine Community School, you are automatically a member of the Parents’ Association (PA). The purpose and aims of the PA are to: 
  • facilitate and encourage the participation by parents in the life of the school 
  • safeguard the rights and the legitimate aspirations and interests of parents and students. 
  • foster and promote an awareness and knowledge of education and of other issues relating to students among the parents.
  • organise the collective support of the parents for the activities of the school and to support and provide assistance to the staff of the school. 
  • promote the development of the school as a focus of educational, social and cultural activity within the community.
Each year at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) a summary of achievements of the PA is presented to all in attendance. At the AGM a call to all parents is made seeking new members to join the PA Executive Committee. The PA Executive Committee is the representative group drawn from the parent body who execute the purpose and aims of the PA. As the school is so vibrant and ambitious there’s always something to be done. This years AGM takes place on October 19th 2020
All parents/guardians are welcome to attend via zoom (details to follow).
We hope to see you on the night.
Janet Mitten Chairperson
