An invitation is extended to parents, caregivers and friends of St Dominic’s School, to attend the 2019 Annual Community Meeting (ACM) of the School Board and Parents & Friends Association. The meeting will take place on Thursday, 21st November in the School Hall, commencing at 5:00pm. The meeting itself is an opportunity for the Board and P&F to outline to the community some of the activities that have taken place in 2019 and what is on the horizon for 2020. The meeting will go for approximately half an hour and will be followed by light refreshments. It is a wonderful opportunity for the St Dominic’s School community to come together and celebrate the work done by the Board and P&F in 2019.
At this meeting, the election of the 2020 School Board will also take place. School Board members are elected for two year terms and can re-nominate for up to a further two terms (six years at the most). Below is an outline of the current 2019 School Board.
