SIS Elections 2018
Election of a Parent Member of the School Council
I write to give notice of the election of a Parent Member to a casual vacancy on the School Council of South Island School, following the completion of two consecutive terms by Janet Walker. We are extremely grateful to Janet for her six years of dedicated support for South Island School as a member of the School Council, and we are very glad that Janet’s expertise will still remain available to the SIS community on an informal basis.
The term of office of School Council members is three years.
The election arrangements require a candidate to have a proposer. I attach a nomination form to enable you to propose a candidate. The candidate must indicate in writing her/his willingness to stand and should be asked to prepare a brief personal statement setting out her/his relevant experience and stating what she/he would hope to contribute to the Council and the School. Parent Members of the School Council may not be employees of ESF. Other than this restriction, the vacancy is open to all parents at SIS.
The deadline for the receipt of nominations is Monday, 22 October 2018 at 4pm. Nomination forms should be handed in at School Reception or posted to the school (marked for the attention of the Principal’s PA), or scanned and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
In the event that we receive more than one nomination, SIS will be using an e-voting system, “Election Runner” to run the election. Details of how to vote will be circulated by email after the 22 October 2018, if a vote proves necessary.
Mr. Tom Vignoles
