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.

The Parents Association works through an Executive Committee, which comprises parents from each year group. If you would like to find out more about becoming a member of this group we would warmly encourage you to contact us through the school office at This email address is being protected from spambots.

There are no particular skills required to become a member of the executive, but we especially welcome enthusiastic, creative and energetic individuals who can bring their unique views and support to the group. New members of the Executive Committee can join each September at our AGM. The date of the AGM will be on the School calendar.

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
