The term of our current Board of Management is coming to an end and the appointment of a new board is now about to begin. At the outset, I would like to pay tribute to the outgoing board who have made a huge contribution to St. Brigid’s N.S. and to its development. Under their guidance, our school has continuously sought to optimise teaching and learning and to ensure that our pupils are taught in best learning environment. I wish to thank Mrs. Helen Spillane, Fr. Kieran Coghlan, Mrs. Orla Higgins, Mr. Fergus Farrell, Mr. Niall O’Neill, Mrs. Ellen Troy and Ms. Susan Moriarty for managing of our school and for giving so generously of their time and expertise over the past four years.
The Board of Management is comprised of two patron’s representatives, two elected parents, a teachers’ representative, the school principal and two community representatives. We are now seeking nominations for a mother for a mothers’ representative and a father for a fathers’ representative to the board. Nominations need a proposer and seconder and should only be submitted with the signature of the nominee on the nomination paper below. The closing time and date for nominations is 2.30pm on Monday November 4th 2019. If there is only one nominee for either position, the nominee(s) shall be deemed to be elected. If more than one nomination is received for either of the position, a secret ballot shall be held at a meeting on November 5th at 7.30p.m. in the Sports Hall. The results will be communicated to all families.
