Election of Male Parent Nominee to the Board of Management

The term of the Board of Management of Lucan East ETNS is from 1st December 2019 to 30th November 2023.  In August our male parent nominee, Andrew Carton, resigned from the Board of Management as his children were no longer attending the school.  We would like to thank Andrew for his service and commitment to the school during this time.

As a result, we will be holding an election for a new male parent nominee to join the existing board which will continue until November 30th 2023.

We are now seeking nominations for the male parents’ nominee 

The Board shall hold a minimum of one meeting per school term and shall hold not less than five meetings in any school year. These meetings take place in the evening time. The new male parents’ nominee will also be required to attend training days which may take place on a weekend.

On Tuesday 19th October at 7.30pm, we will be hosting a remote parents’ meeting via Zoom to elect one new male parent nominee at the following link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84630126656?pwd=WkpUOHJZMkFsSEJHVUhtcHluZmUvQT09.  At this meeting nominations will be sought by a secret ballot using an online poll.

A parent may be nominated by another parent who is in attendance at the meeting, or they may nominate themselves. All nominees must be seconded by a parent in attendance at the meeting.

I would advise parents who are interested in going forward for election to prepare a short 2 minute talk to introduce themselves to the parent body and to say a little about why they would like to be the parent representative on the board.
