Dear Parent/Guardian, I trust you are well.

The term of office of a Community School Board of Management is three years and the current Board expires on the 31st day of July 2020 which is the third year after the Board was constituted. Community and Comprehensive schools are governed by Boards of Management which are given statutory recognition by the Education Act, 1998. The composition of Boards of Management of Community Schools is as follows: • Three Nominees of Religious Trustees or other private Trustee body e.g. Educate Together • Three Nominees of Education and Training Board Trustees • Two Nominees of parents (elected, of whom one must be a mother) • Two Nominees of teaching staff (elected) • Principal (non-voting) The Parents Association have been represented by both Richard O Brien and Liz Harding over these past three years. I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their years of services, input and dedication to the BOM. Their contribution on your behalf has been extremely valuable and considered. The Parents Association would like to commence the agreed process in seeking representatives for the next Board of Management. If you would like to forward a candidate to be considered for election please e mail the candidates details to jga@cashelcommunityschool.ie by noon Thursday the 28th of May. Thanking you in advance.
