IMPORTANT MEETING

ALL SAINTS & BOYNE HILL SCHOOLS ASSOCIATION

Annual General Meeting and Special General Meeting

On 11th October from 3:30pm-4:00pm

At All Saints Junior School

Refreshments will be served

 

AGENDA

  1. Welcome and introduction
  2. Minutes of the last Annual General Meeting
  3. Presentation of accounts for 2017-18
  4. Resolution to dissolve the joint schools association
  5. Adoption of new constitution – joint or single school association
  6. Election of committee
  7. Election of auditor

 

Following the written request of 20 members, in accordance with the constitution, the committee is seeking approval to dissolve the current joint schools association so that each school focuses on its own fund raising endeavours in order to plan more age appropriate activities and events. The two schools will of course, continue working closely together.

If the resolution is agreed, it is proposed that Boyne Hill members will adopt a new constitution and seek approval from the Charities Commission to gain charitable status.

All Saints will consult the school community of parents, carers and staff regarding what kind of parent/teacher collaborative model suits it best. In the short-term, fund-raising and social initiatives will be originated by school leaders with parents/carers approached to support the initiatives in ways which work for them, such as volunteering time to help at events like the Community Day.

 

If the resolution is not agreed, the committee proposes the amendment of the current constitution to:

  1. Remove the requirement for the two school Head Teachers to be Chairpersons on the committee.
  2. Change the funding split to be equally shared rather than based on the number of children on role in each school in the January census.
  3. Update the wording to reflect current practice.
