Trustee Support Day for Chairpersons of CEIST School Boards of Management

CEIST invited our School Board of Management Chairpersons to a Trustee support day on Saturday 17th April in the Tullamore Court Hotel, Tullamore, Co. Offaly.

After registration and coffee, CEIST CEO, Anne Kelleher welcomed all attendees and started the day with an opening prayer.

We then were treated to an insightful speech from our distinguished guest speaker, Fr. Michael Drumm, Chairperson of Catholic Schools Partnership.

At the end of his speech, Fr. Michael officially launched the CEIST "Prayers for Chairs" booklet, which we hope will be of benefit to our Chairpersons.

The Directors of each of the CEIST departments, Mike Higgins (Finance), Ned Prendergast (Faith Development), Michael Lane (School Support) and Information and Communication Systems Manager, John Woods, gave a short presentation on the workings of each department.

In the afternoon we had on open forum for our Chairpersons which produced an informative and lively discussion on educational topics.

The day finished off with a motivational speech from Michael Bond and CEIST CEO, Anne Kelleher gave a closing speech in which she thanked all of our chairpersons for giving up of their valuable time to attend the support day.

It proved to be quite an enjoyable and benefical day for all who attended.
