We have 4 members on the National Parents Council Post Primary who work to deliver the best education system for all students in second level education.
Paccs runs regional and information & training meetings for parents around the country. Members of the Executive run talks for Parents Associations in any Community or Comprehensive school upon request.
We meet with our partners in education on an annual basis to discuss current issues arising from our interaction with our parent body. These include DES,SEC,ACCS, ASTI, TUI, NAPD and opposition spokespersons on education.
We hold our AGM in March of each year, where elections for membership of our National Executive takes place. The President is then elected from members of the incoming Executive.
