The present Board of Management  took up office on 01/12/2011 and will remain in office until 30/11/2015

The composition of the Board of Management is as follows:

i. Two direct nominees of the Patron (proposed by outgoing Board of Management)

ii. Two parents of children enrolled in the school (one being a mother, the other a father) elected by the general body of parents of children enrolled in the school.

iii. The Principal Teacher of the school.

iv. One other teacher on the staff of the school.

v. Two extra members proposed by those nominees, described at (i) – (iv) above.

The Board of Management acts on behalf of the patron (An Foras Patrúnachta), and in accordance with the regulations of the Department of Education and Skills. It operates as ‘a corporate body’. This means that the board acts as one unit in terms of its function in addressing the business of the school. The elected parents and teacher, once elected, do not act in a representative or communicative role.

Each member of the Board of Management should uphold and support the ethos, culture and traditions of the school, be aware of his/her collective and individual responsibilities,  have a specific role/function in the management of the school, support new members in understanding the functions of the board, and the relationship between the board and the    pupils, teachers, staff, parents, patron and the Department of Education and Skills.

It must be noted that Board of Management meetings in schools under the patronage of  An Foras Patrúnachta must be conducted through Irish and therefore all Board members are required to have a working knowledge of Irish.
