CEIST Day for Chairpersons

CEIST invited our School Board of Management Chairpersons to our annual information sessions for CEIST Chairpersons.

This year, we ran the session on two separate days, to facilitate attendance by as many people as possible.

The first session was held on Saturday, October 22nd in the Killeshin Hotel Portlaoise. The second session was held on Wednesday, October 26th in the Tullamore Court Hotel.

This was an important opportunity for our Chairs to appraise themselves and their Board of Management of Trustee matters and concerns.

In addition, it afforded our Chairpersons the opportunity to meet with Chairpersons from other CEIST schools and to share ideas, discuss pertinent issues and ask questions.

In particular we were delighted vto welcome new Chairpersons who took up office on the 15th October. It is hoped that the information and interactions from the information sessions will be of great value to new Chairpersons.

This year we highlighted the Role of the Chairperson, Catholic Identity in our schools, Governance, Compliance and HR Issues (see agenda and presentations below).
