St. Columba’s College has an active Parents’ Association that organizes a wide range of events throughout the academic year.
The Parents’ Association helps to ensure that all parents feel part of the College community through the organization of formal and informal events throughout the school year. Parents are automatically members of the Parents’ Association and are encouraged to become actively involved in the Committee, which represents the interests of students.
*** Please note that we have had to cancel all our planned events including coffee mornings for the foreseeable future until Government restrictions on social gatherings are eased and it is safe to hold them again. ***
The Association is involved in many areas of school life and key roles include :
- Social events which include a New Parents Welcome Cocktail party and
Parent Coffee mornings.
- Donations to school initiatives to enhance students experiences
- Running and stocking the Second Hand Uniform Shop
- Inviting Guest speakers to address parents on topical interests of relevance to general health and well being of students
