Ní neart go cur le chéile | There is strength in unity
Our Board of Management (BOM) manages our school on behalf of our patron, the Catholic Bishop of Kildare & Leighlin, and is accountable to both the patron and the Minister of Education. Our Board must uphold the Catholic ethos of St. Colman’s N.S. while having the responsibility of overseeing the running of the school. The Board is appointed for a four year term and the term of office for new Boards of Management is from 1December 2015 to 30 November 2019 .
Structure of the Board
A “Core Board” consists of
Two direct nominees of the Patron
Two parent nominees, a mother and a father, elected from parents of students attending the school.
A teacher nominee, elected by teachers in the school
The school principal
The core board, when elected, must then appoint two members from the wider community
Our Board of Management work in a voluntary capacity for the benefit of all students, staff and parents of St. Colman’s N.S. and for this we are sincerely grateful.
