06/05/15 Training Seminar for Schools: Budgeting and Legal Matters

06/05/15 Training Seminar for Schools: Budgeting and Legal Matters

Location: The Clarion Hotel, Liffey Valley, Dublin
Date: 19th May 2015
Time: 9.00am – 3.00in

Due to the financial cutbacks of recent years, schools are under constant pressure to ensure sufficient funding for the school to function to its full potential. It is more important than ever that the Board of Management are aware of the financial situation in their schools. To ensure this, An Foras Pátrúnachta have arranged an important seminar for our schools. The first half of the seminar will deal in particular with budgeting. The second part of the day will partain to legal matters. 


1. Finance – setting a budget for the schoolyear 2015/16

2. Legal –          Ø The disciplinary process 

                             Ø How to reduce disputes and avoid accusations


Finance – Louise McNamara – FSSU

We are delighted to say that Louise McNamara will be giving the seminar on finance. Louise is the head of the FSSU, the organisation which gives advice to second level schools in regards to financial matters. Your budget for the next schoolyear will be more or less completed after her seminar. It is of utmost importance that the Principal of the school is in attendance at this session if possible, as well as the Chairperson and Treasurer. 


Law – Mason Hayes & Curran 

Mason, Hayes & Curran are the leading legal firm in the country when it comes to education. We are delighted that one of their senior lawyers will be joining us on the day to share their expert knowledge with our schools. An the day they will be focusing on (1) school response to underperforming teachers and (2) how to deal with a challenging parent. Again we stress the importance for principals, chairpersons and members of the Board to attend where possible.


This seminar session is free of charge for schools under An Foras Pátrúnachta, but an email to is required to reserve a place. It is permissible for the Board of Management to cover any costs of travelling etc as it is an occasion for the sake of the school.
