Parents play the most vital role in their child’s education. In CBS Roscommon we welcome and encourage the involvement of parents and have a very active parents’ association which has undertaken considerable work over the years for which the school is very grateful.
One of the practical ways that parents can support the school in its efforts is by participating in events organised by the parents’ association and by lending their assistance.
What does the association do?
• Liaises with the principal and the board of management on matters relating to the schoo
• Adopts a programme of activities which will promote the involvement of parents in the operation of the school, in consultation with the principal.
• Decides, in conjunction with the principal, the allocation of funds raised by the parents association.
How can you get involved in the Association?
The AGM of the association is held in October each year and new members are always welcome. Election of new officers and members occur at the AGM. If you are interested in becoming involved, please contact the chairperson or one of the current members.
Assistance required for individual events
You do not need to be a member of the association to assist at individual events. Assistance is required with a wide range of events including the Open Day for prospective new students and parents, fundraising activities, providing information and refreshments at various events and coming up with suggestions for school improvements. Please contact the chairperson or one of the current members if you wish to become involved or contact the school office with your details. All participation by parents is most welcome.
The Parents’ Association Executive for the year 2016 – 2017:

‘CBS Roscommon – building on tradition, looking to the future’
‘CBS Roscommon is unrecognisable from the school I first attended over 30 years ago. It is still offering teaching of the highest standards but the focus has switched and evolved to centre on the students and “education” in its broadest sense. CBS Roscommon provides a very complete all round education for its students in 2014.’
Aidan Farrell, CBS parent and past pupil
