Parents Association

Grennan College Parents Council, as one of the educational partners, plays an active role in the activities of the college. The Council, through its elected officers is involved in policy development, fund raising and student awards.

Policy Development

The Council is actively involved in developing and drafting school policies and in reviewing these policies on an ongoing basis.

Fund-raising

Each year, in conjunction with the local soccer club, the association organises a duck race on the river Nore in order to raise funds which goes towards the provision of extra curricular activities of the students.

Student awards

Each year the Berkeley Cup is presented to the student who achieves the highest grades in the Leaving Certificate.

The Berkeley Shield, also presented by the Parents Council, is awarded to a student who records a particular achievement in some discipline.

The current elected officers of the parents Council are:

Dr Larry Stapleton Chairperson
Mrs Katherine Hynes Secretary
Mr Joseph Wemyss Treasurer
Mrs C Brennan Assistant Secretary
