Parent Governor Elections

Rainey-crest-clear-253x300Dear Parent/Guardian

 

The nominations for Parent Governor Elections were received on Monday 6 November 2017. At the time of closing the receipt of nominations, two, properly nominated, names were received. As the Scheme of Management sets out:

 

“(ix) If only two nominations are received there will be no need for a vote and both candidates will be deemed elected.”

 

Consequently, as this is the case there is no need to hold a meeting on 13 November 2017. It is now cancelled. The two Parent Governors for the 2018-2021 period are:

 

Mr Aidan Donnelly and Mrs Sandra Overend

 

Yours sincerely

 

DM McCullough
