Parents' Council Activities

Here at Oatlands College we have a very active Parents Council.  The Council is run by a committee of volunteers who work very hard on behalf of the general parent body and all of the students of the college.  The council elects officers: Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer to run our affairs and also elects two representatives to the Board of Management of Oatlands College.


Our activities are wide and varied and include the following:

Communication to Parents:

o   Information meetings for parents involving guest speakers on topics of interest to parents of second level students

o   Development of an information booklet for parents of 1st year students outlining the changes from Primary to Post Primary school

Social events:

o   Coffee morning for parents of 1st year students

o   Debs reception for 6th Year students, their partners and families

o   6th Year Leave Taking Barbeque

Fund raising events:

o   Car boot sale

o   Bag2School (used clothing collection to raise funds for the school and the LauraLynn hospice)

o   Secondhand book/uniform sale in June 

Involvement in many school projects and activities:

o   School musical – assistance with costumes, makeup, hair, props and raffle

o   Provision of tea/coffee at parent teacher meetings

o   Receptions for school celebrations – for example on recent visit of President Higgins

o   Development of the school website

Lobbying on behalf of parents:
