HFS Newsletter – Term 3 – Week 5

School Consultative Group Nominations

We have still not received any confirmed nominations for parents to join the School Consultative Group. It is important for the operation of this group that we get representation from as wide a range of the school community as possible. We have therefore decided to open nominations for one more week. The revised timeline is included below. If we are unable to form a quorate group, an open meeting will be held on the date outlined below to discuss how best to proceed.

N.B – Some nominations have been received but not confirmed. Parents who have been nominated have been contacted by email, asking them to confirm that they wish to be involved with this group. Until we receive a response to that email, we cannot proceed with including that person in an election process or involve them as a parent representative. If you have received an email, please respond confirming you wish to be involved with this group.

We are holding elections to select two parent representatives to join our School Consultative Group.

The aims of the School Consultative Group are:

  • To ensure smooth and effective communication amongst all stakeholders in the school
  • To help the school community acquire an improved understanding of the operation of the school
  • To listen to the views and opinions of the school community and endeavour to reflect them in the management of the school

The election will proceed as follows:

If a parent would like to nominate a parent to be a representative, please complete a nomination form by Friday 24th May. You may nominate two people, including yourself. 

Voting papers with the candidates’ names will be sent home with students on Monday 27th May

Voting papers must be returned by Friday 31st May

The results will be announced via the newsletter on Friday 31st May

The first meeting of the newly elected group will be on Wednesday 12th June

The operation of this group is fully explained in the School Consultative Group Policy
