Parents' Council

 

The Parents' Council in St. Mary's College exists to represent, support and enhance parents' interests in their child's journey through their  secondary school years at St. Mary's College. Apart from essential but minimal fundraising, the Parents' Council holds events of interest to parents of teenagers. In October, leading psychologist and author, Dr. Tony Humphreys gave a talk on the complex issues our teenagers face and how they can be affected by what we might often consider "normal" occurrences. It was a very useful and enlightening talk.

 

Another important feature of the Parents' Council is that it provides a platform for the parent body to contribute their views and suggestions - where appropriate - to policy issues within the school.   They made a major submission to the Advisory Board of Studies which covered areas of interest and concern to parents including assessment, exam performance, homework, communication and subject choice. This involvement fosters mutual understanding and respect between the school and parents.

 

Above all, St. Mary's Parents' Council depends on the support and goodwill of all parents - especially in helping out on the Flag Day, the Christmas Draw and the Annual Car Boot Sale.

 

New members are always welcome and diversity is encouraged. Remember, being involved does not take up much time and it benefits you and your child greatly. For more information or to talk to a Parents' Council member please contact the school office.

Parents' Council

A big thank you....

 

.... to parents and supporters of the school who generously donated their time and money to  events throughout the school year.  All money raised and donated to the school directly benefits the pupils. This year the Parents' Council funding  paid for a new sound system for the school hall and 25 computers for a new computer room - soon to be up and running - which will greatly improve IT access for pupils. The Parents' Council also funded the "Driving for Life" Rosemary Smith driving skills course for TY students. All this could not have been funded without the support from the parents and the wider community and it demonstrates that Parents' Council activities are extremely worthwhile.
