Thank you to all our parents for their support over the years and we look forward to your continued support in the future.
Wilson’s Hospital School Parents Council (WHSPC) is an active committee working in cooperation with the school to promote the education, welfare and interests of our children. Every parent/guardian of a current student in the school is automatically a member of the Parents Council. The members are represented by a committee of parents who are voted in each October at the AGM.
WHSPC contribute to and support various projects and events throughout the school year. We provide a forum to represent the views of parents, ask questions, have an input into school policies and offer opportunities throughout the year for parents to get to know each other.
WHSPC meetings take place at 7:30pm in the Boardroom on the third Sunday of each month over the course of the school year. Minutes for the monthly meetings are available on request. The Warden, Mrs. Niamh McShane regularly attends our meetings giving a full and valued Warden’s Report which is then open to discussion and questions - keeping WHSPC informed and up to date with events, activities and plans for the school.

Wilsons Hospital School was privileged to host the 2018 Compass Annual General Meeting in May 2018. COMPASS is the link, through the National Parents Council post primary (NPCpp), for parents in Minority Religion schools to the Government and the Department of Education. The AGM saw changes to the NPCpp constitution, and the new Parents and Student Charter was outlined.
