School Board

The school is governed by a School Board, which generally meets twice per term. Membership of the School Board consists of the Parish Priest, Principal, Parents (six representatives), Staff representative, P&F association representative and other co-opted members from time to time. The board welcomes enquiries, suggestions, or any communication from our parents. Such enquiries are directed to the Chairperson or Principal. The School Board essentially hold a governing role deciding policy direction, managing financial affairs, and ensuring that the educational programme meets the stipulated aims of the school.

Parents and Friends

The Parents and Friends is made up of parents who are extremely valuable to our school community. Monthly meetings of the association are held, the meetings and activities of our parents provide an excellent opportunity for making new friendships with other parents.   A well-organised Spring Fair in late October is the main activity, while many other events are held to provide social interaction and raise money for the school.  Among the functions undertaken by our Parents and Friends which directly support our school’s workload are: Working Bees, Canteen, School Uniform Shop, Fundraising, and Welcoming Committee. There is so much to be gained, for individuals and our school community, through our school’s tradition of an active Parents and Friends group. You are invited to take part in, and maintain, this strong tradition at Our Lady of Grace.
