The Wesley College Parent Teacher Association aims to advance the education and welfare of pupils, promoting co-operation and communication between the management of the college, parents and staff.  and assisting with social, educational and other activities for the Wesley community.


We represent the interests of parents of day and boarder pupils at the school and provide input to the formulation and implementation of school policies. All parents are members of the association, which is run by an elected committee. The operation of the association is governed by a constitution, which may be viewed and downloaded at WCDPTA Constitution


The association is funded primarily through a contribution collected from parents through the college's normal fee invoicing. These funds, together with those raised through some of the activities which the PTA runs, are used in fulfilling the aims of the association. 


 The association runs, assists with or financially supports some regular activities which are an integral to college life, the principal ones being the following.
First year parents' coffee morning Pre-Debs Soiree
Poetry Aloud PTA AGM
Student Enterprise Awards Spring Guest Speaker
Model United Nations Interschools Music Festival
Seachtain na Gaeilge Green Week
Business Innovation Award Ready Steady Cook
Wesley Artist of the Year Book Week
Habitat for Humanity School Leaver’s BBQ
Uniform Sale  


 The PTA is represented, through appointed committee members, on the Board of Governors' Buildings & Grounds Committee and on COMPASS (Co-operation of Minority Religion and Protestant Parent Associations (Post Primary)).


The association also nominates one member of the Board of Management.
