They issue minutes of meetings to the Parent body and communicate with parents and teachers through text messages, email and Aladdin.

The P.A. have, in tandem with the school, organised impressive Leckaun N.S. Christmas cards in 2009 and 2010.
The Parents' Association organise an annual trip to Sligo’s Hawkswell Theatre to attend the Christmas Pantomime.
They organise an annual and by now legendary Christmas Santa Party for all present and prospective school pupils.
They organise medal presentations and assist with school celebrations as well as providing post First Holy Communion refreshments in Newtownmanor Hall.
They fund-raise through coffee mornings, Sponsored Walks, Raffles, Cake Sales, Cash for Clobber Clothes Collection and other activities subject to prior Board of Management approval.
The Parents' Association also organise the Christmas Shoebox Appeal in our school each year. This is a very worthy cause and receives great support from parents and pupils in Leckaun N.S.
