An Bord Bainistíochta / Board of management

Dear Parents,

You are probably all aware that the term of the current Board of management is coming to an end and a new Board of Management will have to be assembled before December. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the current board for serving Gaelscoil Chionn tSáile for the last 4 years. The outgoing Board of Management is as follows

Chairman: Gabriel Ó Cathasaigh
Príomhoide: Sinéad Ní Mhurchú
Múinteoir: Michelle Ní Riagáin
Cisteoir: Judy Uí Cochláin
Tuismitheoir: Sinéad Uí Dhoinnléibhe
Tuismitheoir: Ger Ó Murchú
Ón bPobal áitiúl: Oisín Ó Díomasaigh
Ón bpobal áitiúl: Penny Uí hEathírn

Ár mhórbhuíochas leo uilig. Maybe they would like to put their names forward again?! They are more than welcome to do so!

A Board of Management requires 2 parent’s representatives to sit on the board, one mother and one father. The board meets 4-5 times a year and various aspects of school progress / life are discussed at the meetings. These meetings are conducted through the medium of Irish so it is essential that the parent’s representatives (and all other members) have a good understanding and working knowledge of Gaeilge.

If you feel that you are a suitable candidate and are willing to devote the time required to the board I would like to invite you to nominate yourself by coming to me before 2.30pm on Wednesday 9th November. I will compile 2 panels of nominees – one panel of mothers and one of fathers.

We will have a meeting in the school on Wednesday 9th November at 7.30pm where people will be invited to elect the parent’s representatives for the Board from the list of nominees. All are welcome to attend. If there is more that one nomination per role a secret ballot shall be held and parents may vote for those candidates. Where only one mother or one father has been nominated those parents shall be deemed elected.

Voting returns from the ballot may be retained for the purposes of co-option to fill vacancies occurring during the life of the board.
