Summerhill College

Parents Association

The Parents Association in Summerhill works with the Principal, staff and Board of Management to build an effective partnership between home and school. Educational research has shown that the involvement of parents in schools leads to children achieving higher levels.

The Parents Association reviews new policies which the school wish to implement, offers support for parents in the school and invites speakers to address parents on topical and relevant issues.

In Summerhill all parents are free to attend any/all of the meetings which are held throughout the school year. These meetings are held in the school in a relaxed atmosphere giving parents a chance to discuss relevant issues, hear from the Principal and get to meet with other parents over a cup of coffee.

The current Parents Association committee are:
Chairperson: Clodagh Lynch
Assist. Chairperson: Eileen Dunleavy
Secretary: Caroline Monaghan
Treasurer: Liz Sheridan
P.R.O. Lydia McLoughlin
