The St. Joseph’s School Advisory Board meets once a month and welcomes any input from members of the school community for items of discussion.
Annual General Meeting:
All parents/legal guardians of a child enrolled at St. Joseph’s are invited to attend the St. Joseph’s School Advisory Board Annual General Meeting (AGM). The date, time and venue details are advertised in the school newsletter. Each year at the AGM, the Advisory Board conducts an election for school parent representatives on the Advisory Board for the coming three-year period. This is a great opportunity for any parent with a child enrolled at the school to become involved, with the aim of developing St. Joseph’s in the best way possible.
Through representation on the School Advisory Board, each board member assumes a leadership role in the school. Therefore, members must be committed to the ethos of the school as articulated in its mission and vision statements.
