Welcome to the Loreto Abbey Parents’ Association
Every parent and guardian in Loreto Abbey Dalkey is a valued member of the Parents’ Association. We are all interested in the formal and informal education of our daughters and we all share an active interest in their happiness and well-being.
Over the years the Parents Association have worked successfully to create a positive dialogue between the school management, the pupils and Parents. The main work in recent years has focused on:
Parent Education and information evenings (see Parents Education Section below)
Coordination of Mock Interviews for 6th year students preparing for college and work applications
Participation and involvement in National Parent Organizations
Annual social events with each year group
Representation of issues important to parents to School Management on relevant school topics
Fundraising activities, including the wonderful “Strictly Dalkey” in 2015
Sponsorship of prizes for students who show outstanding commitment in various academic, creative and social areas
Involvement in School Policy Development and reviews
The aims of the Association are to:
• Support the aims and objectives of the School.
• Act in an advisory capacity in promoting the educational and Christian ethos of the school and general welfare of its pupils.
• Promote understanding and communication between parents, management and pupils.
• Encourage parent participation in school activities.
Consistent with these aims, the Association operates under a constitution which has been approved by the parent members of the Association and by the school Board of Management.
