The Board

The college is governed by a Board of Management, in accordance with the Education Act of 1998, which is answerable to the Trustee. The Board has eight members comprising of two elected parents, two elected teachers and four members appointed by the Trustee. The Board meets every month and deals with issues of governance i.e. the finances of the college, the maintenance of the buildings and grounds, college policies, health and safety concerns, child protection issues, standards of excellence in teaching and learning, as well as in co-curricular activities, and how the Vincentian ethos can be maintained in all of the work, and the life of the college. Some of the Board’s work is done by sub-committees which report to the Board.
