Board of Management
St. Kilian’s includes Kindergarten, Primary and Secondary Schools, with over 28 nationalities represented. St. Kilian’s provides students with a unique positioning.
One of our great strengths at St. Kilian’s is the extraordinary level of involvement of its parents. Our Board of Management consists of nine parents who are democratically elected by other parents. The Board of Management devolves the day-to-day running of the school to the principal. The Principal is responsible for all matters academic. The Board of Management meets monthly.
For a detailed understanding of the Board’s structure please read our Bye-Laws.
