Welcome to Corpus Christi Parents Association
Corpus Christi Parents Association was established over 20 years ago with the aim of working with the Principal, the staff and the Board of Management to build effective co-operation and partnership between home and school.
Its role is supporting the school and the parents in the raising and education of our children. It also supports the development of the broader school community.
Membership is open to all parents / guardians of any child attending Corpus Christi school. New members are particularly welcome. The Association is governed by a written constitution and an Annual General Meeting is held each October.
The Officers of the Association (Chairperson, Vice-Chairperson, Treasurer and Secretary) are elected annually.
The Association meets monthly during the school year in the School. The meetings last for approximately an hour and are informal.
