The parent council represents and welcomes ALL parents/guardians of children at the school
Welcome to Aberdour Parent Council information site; we are a group made up of parents and teachers, working with the school to offer parents/guardians a voice for their ideas and contribution to the work of the school and a forum to discuss educational issues/concerns.
All parents/guardians are invited to come to meetings, socialise, share ideas (see below) and get involved, in whatever capacity they choose, as little or as often as they want.
A Parent Council (PC) should provide Parents with the following:
- information about the PC and its activities
- an invitation to be involved in PC activities, such as subcommittees
- opportunities to express their opinion on issues relating to the school community
The Constitutional Objectives of Aberdour Parent Council (APC) are:
- to work in partnership with the school, to create a welcoming environment, which is inclusive for all involved in the school
- to promote partnership among school staff, its pupils, all its parents and the wider community
- to develop and engage in activities which support the education and welfare of the pupils
- to identify and represent the views of parents on the education provided by the school, and other matters affecting the education and welfare of pupils
Chair of PC Mrs Aishling O'Sullivan
To enable easier communication between parents and the school/PC, the APC has Class Representatives. All parents are encouraged to contact their relevant Class Rep before an upcoming PC meeting, to put forward any issues which they would like to raise.*
Please contact your class rep directly if you have anything to discuss at the next PC meeting.
