Parents Council

Our main role is to support and create a welcoming school that is inclusive for all parents and to promote relationships between the school, the children, the parents and the Ballycotton Community.

Our aim is to develop and participate in activities which support the education and welfare of the children while representing the views of the parents.


We are very proud of our school and we value the vital role that it plays both in our children's education and in the community.
