Parents’ Council

Please visit BLOG for Parents Council Noticeboard and News

Welcome to our Parents' Council

We are very fortunate to have a very vibrant, committed, honest and hard-working Parents' Council in our college. All parents/guardians of students attending Oatlands College are deemed to be members of the Parents Council. We have representatives of each year group on the Parents' Council committee which meets monthly during term time, usually on the first Tuesday of each month. We also have an active and enthusiastic group of volunteer parents who assist during the year at some of our larger events, for example The Christmas Fair and The School Musical.

The Parents' Council is as follows:

  • Ms Marie Kilmartin, Chairperson
  • Ms Sharon Gleeson, Secretary
  • Ms Katherine Looby, Treasurer
  • Ms Caroline Garrett, Principal
  • Ms Dorina Clarke and Mr Oliver Seery - Parent Respresentatives on the Board of Management

As a representative body we:

  • foster co-operation between the parents/guardians, student council, teachers and college management
  • provides a forum to represent views or an opportunity for the parents/guardians to express their ideas to the college management
  • provide feedback/input into development and amendment of school policies
  • help fundraise for the school

The Parents Council assist and support the college as follows:

Code of Behaviour, Enrolment Policy etc.
Coffee Mornings, Parent-Teacher Meetings, Information Evenings, Open Nights, Graduation Nights
Debs Nights, TY Annual Musical, Graduation Class School Leaving Day 
Annual Christmas Fair, Battle of the Bands, Bag2School Initiative, Book and Uniform Sale
