Rathdown has a lively and active Parent Teacher Association (PTA), which works together with the Junior and Senior School Principals to form an effective partnership between home and school.  

The purpose of the PTA is to:

        • Facilitate an efficient and effective communication flow between school management and parents

        • Support the school ethos while promoting the needs and interests of the pupils 

        • Fundraise to enhance the school environment for the pupils and teachers
