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.
