The Parent Council represents the views of parents / carers:
- to support the school in improving the experience of our children and
- promote communication within the school community
Our group – largely comprising parents and staff – meets around 6 times a year. ERC Councillors also attend. Smaller sub groups push forward specific projects.
We aim to keep you in touch with you on this web site, in newsletters and on our Facebook page (search on Our Lady of the Missions Primary School Parent Council and then “like” us to follow our news).
Parents/carers are also welcome to attend any meeting. These take place on a Thursday at 7pm in the school roughly every 6 weeks. Dates are advertised in advance (see below).
Members are self nominated only at the AGM (in August / September) – if you are interested, watch out for details at the beginning of each school year so that you can attend.
However, we always want to know your views, comments and suggestions. Please get in touch at any time on

The PSA organises fund raising and social events for the school community – from discos and ceilidhs through to our very busy summer and Christmas fayres.
Funds raised support many activities in school such as Christmas and leavers’ parties, purchase of additional equipment and buses for school trips.
Parents can join the PSA at its first meeting (the AGM in September) and attend monthly meetings to help organise events or can join the mailing list to help out occasionally – more helpers for events are desperately needed at all times as there is a always lot to do on the day!
Meetings are on the first Tuesday of every month at 7pm in the school. We hope to see you there!
