The St James Education Board comprises the Parish Priest, Principal, Deputy Principal, Staff Representative, a P&F representative, parents representing different levels of the school and the Parish Priest nominee. The Education Board usually meets once or twice a term and discusses Educational matters and makes recommendations to the Principal and Parish Priest. An outline of matters to be discussed is placed in the newsletter(s) before each meeting. A report is included in the newsletter after each meeting. Parents are asked to contact any representative of the Board, should they wish to have an educational matter raised and discussed at meetings. The chair of the board is decided at the first meeting.
