The first session will cover the following modules:
• The Board as a Corporate Entity
• Appointment Procedures
• Board Finances and the Role of the Treasurer
There will also be an input on the Ethos of the Catholic School and we hope to have a member of staff from the Charities Regulatory Authority to speak about the Registration of Schools for Charitable Status.
We are very fortunate to have secured the services of two very experienced facilitators for these sessions Margaret Gorman, LL.B, LL.M, Partner and Head of Education in Eversheds International Law Firm and Sean Hourihane BL, Principal of Scoil Áine Naofa, Lucan.
Margaret and Sean have both worked with the Catholic Primary Schools Management Association and have extensive experience in advising and training Boards of Management on the wide variety of issues currently impacting on Irish Primary Schools.
