SCHOOL COUNCIL NOMINATIONS – PARENT REPS

31/07/2017
Nominations are now open for 2 Parent reps on the Redland Bay State School Council.  As this is our first School Council the tenure of the positions is for not more than 3 years (usually it would be for not more than 2yrs).  If you would like to be a candidate then you need to collect a nomination form from the school office.  The form should be completed and you will require a P&C member to nominate you and a second P&C member to Second your nomination.  The completed nomination form should be given to the Returning Officer (Ms Kathy Lacey). 
 
 THE ROLE:  To be eligible for election as a Parent Rep a person MUST;
 
·         Be a parent with a child enrolled at the school
 
·         Not have been convicted of an indictable offence
 
·         Be able to attend School Council meetings
 
Whilst this is not a pre-requisite…Ideally the 2 Parent Reps should have a close relationship with the school and also have strong links within the community.  It would be an advantage if you could bring some specific skills, professional knowledge or connections to the Council and thus build the overall capacity of the Council.  The meetings will take place at least once/term and will most likely be in the evenings.  Could Nominees please attach to their completed nomination form, a short outline of who they are and how they feel they may be able to contribute to the School Council.  I will provide your outline to our Parent Community prior to the vote in 22nd August.
 
 NOMINATIONS:  A nomination form is available from the school office.  All nominations must have the endorsement of 2 P&C Members (Nominator and Seconder).  All completed nominations should be received by the Returning Officer (Kathy Lacey – Deputy Principal) prior to the election on 22nd August.  If you are unable to complete the nomination form prior to the Election at the P&C Meeting on Tuesday 22nd Aug, then you can seek a P&C member to nominate you and another to second your nomination at the meeting on 22nd Aug. 
 
ELECTION: The election will occur between 22nd Aug and 25th Aug.  The first opportunity to cast a ballot for the Parent reps will be at the P&C Meeting on Tuesday 22nd Aug at 7.00pm. 
 
 RESULTS:  The results of the Election will be announced on Monday 28th August.
