Parents' Council

The Parents’ Council at Christ King Girls' Secondary School is a very active and vibrant council and is open to all parents and guardians. Since its beginning, the Council works in close partnership with senior management and staff. It is a vital and valued link between the School and the parents of the students and plays a key role in the life of the School.

The Parents’ Council is friendly, informal and productive. During the academic year, the Council holds monthly meetings in the School which is open to all parents. These meetings take place on the first Tuesday of each month at 7:30pm and give parents a forum for discussion, opportunities to address trends in education and policy development. Two parents also represent the parent body on the Board of Management.

The main aims of the Parents’ Council are:

  • To represent the views of parents and guardians
  • To inform parents and guardians of developments in the School and in the wider area of education
  • To foster cooperation between parents/guardians, teachers, and school management.
  • To arrange talks of interest for parents throughout the academic year
  • To raise funds for the benefit of the students in the School.

There will be regular updates from them on this site.
