Dear Parent/ Guardian,

Board of Management Election

The four-year term of our Board of Management is coming to an end later this month and I wish to thank the outgoing Board for their dedication and commitment to the school over the last number of years.

We propose to hold a meeting to elect parent nominees to the incoming Board in the School Hall on Tuesday, 14 November at 7.15. Nominations will be sought at the meeting from parents for persons to stand for election as parent nominees on the Board for both a mother’s panel and a father’s panel and a ballot held.

Parent’s Association

The PA are holding a meeting in the school on Tuesday, 14 November at 730pm (following the Parent Nominees to the BOM meeting process). All are welcome.
