The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) of Ashbourne Community School is an active committee of parents, teachers and Board of Management representatives.

If any parent/guardian wants to contact any of the above officers, please do so through the school office.
We meet on the second Tuesday of each month. Our AGM is held during the month of October.
The PTA is consulted on policy issues by the Board of Management.
If you have any ideas, comments, suggestions or queries, please contact us either via the school office or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The PTA is affiliated to PACCS, the association for parent bodies of Community and Comprehensive schools. Every 3rd year, we organise the election of two parent representatives on the Board of Management.
On an annual basis, the PTA sponsors the Awards Night in the school and the 6th Year Graduation. We also sponsor several scholarships.
We supply the school uniform through the school uniform shop. Profits are used to help reduce costs for parents/guardians. So far, we have been able to defray the costs of Junior and Leaving Certificate Mock exams on an annual basis.
