Nominations are open for the election of five parent representatives to the school board. Three are to be elected for a three-year term ending in 2025, while two are to be elected for an 18-month term ending in 2024 school year. At the first 18 month mark, the two members who stood for 18 months will step down so that new Board members are elected. The rest remain on until the full three year cycle is up. At the subsequent triennial election, the Board members that have been on for a full three years stand down while the Trustees that started at 18 months mark prior, stay on until a further 18 months has passed and then they stand down.
