Management Committee Election 2018 - call for candidates

Management Committee Election 2018

Call for Candidates

This year’s election to the Management Committee will take place during May and June but before we can have an election we need some candidates. The Association Management Committee (MC) represents the parents interests at school meetings such as the Administration Board, Primary and Secondary Education Councils, School Advisory and Canteen Committees. MC members also help in many other areas of the school such as infrastructure and transport.

All parents can ask the Association MC members to help them in their dealings with the school whether it be a request for education support or assistance with a disciplinary matter or just a question about school procedures and regulations. The parents association has the responsibility to run the extra-curricular activities for the school and this is a tremendous challenge for the MC members to undertake.

If you wish to serve on the Association Management Committee then please complete and submit the form on the Election 2018 page. 

Si vous souhaitez siéger au Comité de gestion de l’Association, veuillez remplir et soumettre le formulaire à la page Élection 2018.

Volunteering to help

If being on a committee seems like a commitment too far then we always need  parents to help with the many ongoing projects that we have such as the school fête and the extra-curricular activities as well as helping the school with their various projects. We plan to implement many new working methods in the association during the coming months and we need parents to help put these in place. If you are keen to help but have only limited time to spare then contact the office and let them know – they will pass your details to the appropriate MC member, who will be grateful to share the workload.
