​​The primary goal of the Association is to represent the interests of you as parents/guardians of children at the school and to promote good relationships between parents/guardians and the school.


The Association is represented at every level across the management of the school. 
The President and Vice Chair, are the Parent Representatives on the  School Board of Management. 


With members of the general committee also on each of the Board sub-committees – Education (Susannah Love), Sport & Recreation (Peter de Lacy), Finance (Avril Robinson), and Grounds & Property (Steve Wilson) – the parents association is consulted on the development of all major new policies at the school.
