Strathmore College Council carries ultimate responsibility for setting the direction and ethos of the school. It decides on broad policy issues and oversees the structure of the College’s curriculum. Success of the College depends very much upon the efforts of a united and effective College Council. Representatives are expected to consult with others so that the views of the College community, rather than those of an individual, are reflected in the decisions of Council.
Each member of council serves for a two year term before being eligible for re-election. Half of the members retire each year, hence the need for annual elections. A notice of election for 2019 is below. Two separate electorates operate - one for the election of parent members and one for the election of DET (Department of Education & Training) employee members.
Any parent of a child enrolled at the College is eligible to stand for election as a parent member of Council (so long as the parent is not employed by DET at the College).
Candidates can choose to nominate using either,
Self-nomination requiring the candidate’s signature; or
Nomination by an eligible person requiring the signature of nominator and candidate.
A statement will be sought from each candidate for distribution with election ballot papers.
Nomination forms are available from the College General Office.
