Election of Parent Members of the School Council

Dear Parents,

SIS Elections 2017

Election of Parent Members 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 Martine Porter.

The term of office of School Council members is three years.

The election arrangements require a candidate to have a proposer. I attach a link to the nomination form to enable you to propose a candidate. The candidate must indicate in writing his/her willingness to stand and should be asked to complete a brief personal statement on the attached pro forma setting out his/her relevant experience and stating what he/she would hope to contribute to the Council and the School.  Parent Members of the School Council may not be employees of ESF.

The last date for the receipt of nominations, which should be handed in at School Reception, or posted to the school (for the attention of the Clerk to School Council) or scanned and emailed to siscouncil@sis.edu.hk, before 4.00pm on 16th October 2017.

In the event that a ballot is required this year, our school will be using an e-voting system, “Simply Voting” to run the election. Details of how to vote will be circulated after the 16th October 2017, if a vote proves necessary.

Yours sincerely,

Graham Silverthorne
