Dear Parents and Guardians/A Thuismitheoirí agus a Chaomhnóirí,
Board of Management Changeover
All current boards will finish on 30th November 2023 and the new board will commence its term of office on 1st December 2023.
We will hold election processes for Teacher nominees and Parent nominees in the coming weeks. For further details see below.
Parent nominees X 2: Parents/Guardians of the school nominate and elect parent nominees. This is done using either option 1 (meeting) or option 2 (separate ballot). Please see Appendix B (page 58) of Governance Manual for Primary Schools 2019 to 2023. It is advised to complete this process by mid-November; we usually do this on the same evening as the Parents’ Association AGM. Please note, it is not within the formal remit of the Parents’ Association to organise these elections.
The parents/guardians nominated to the board must be one male and one female.
The board is advised to keep a record of the results of the nomination/election process as they may be used in future to co-opt a parent onto the board if a parent steps down.
Please note parent nominees may be re-nominated/re-elected but must stand as a candidate, it is not an automatic re-nomination.
Role of Treasurer: Each board of management must appoint a treasurer from among the eight members. We are currently seeking someone with skills suitable to becoming the next Treasurer of the Board.
Length of Service: Each term is 4 years the Charities Regulator advises that for good governance an individual should serve no more than nine years on the board of management.
Daniel’s junior infants having great fun practicing some fine motor skills by cutting and sticking the Humpty Dumpty story in order
4th class had an absolute treat for Show & Tell last week.
Faye brought in her bearded dragon lizard called Summer. She taught us how to look after her, what to feed her (live mealworms!) and how to handle her and stroke her.
Mia brought in 3 of her African snails. These are the babies. The adults can grow up to about 15cm long! We learned what to feed them (cucumber, strawberries and lettuce) and how to handle them with care.
Thank you, Faye and Mia, for a fascinating morning!

- Please arrive to school on time as many classes are doing circle time and other learning activities at 8:40am, coming in later than this disrupts the whole class learning and means your child is missing out.
