The Board, under the chairperson Ciara Walsh, carries out a huge amount of important work during the school year in areas such as Child Protection, School Infrastructure, Finance and Curricular Development to name but a few. This time is given voluntarily and is hugely appreciated. Reports from Board meetings are available to view on the school website.
