Following the resignation of Ms Susan Finder at the end of her term as Parent Member on the Island School Council, elections are now open for a new member.

The term of office of School Council Members is three years.
This is an important opportunity to represent parents on the main governing body of the school. The council has a key role in several areas of school life with committees working on Buildings and Redevelopment, Health, Safety and Risk Management, Curriculum and Higher Education, Human Resources and finally Finance. Counsellors are expected to join at least one of these committees. Feel free to contact the Council Chair, Mr Robert Gibson, the Principal or other council members about the nature of the role.

The election arrangements require a candidate to have a proposer.  I attach a Nomination Form to enable you to propose a candidate.  The candidate must indicate in writing his/her willingness to stand and should be asked to prepare a brief Personal Statement setting out his/her relevant experience and stating what he/she would hope to contribute to the Council and the School.  Parent Members of the School Council may not be employees of ESF.

The last date for the receipt of nominations and Candidate’s Statement should be handed in to Ms Betty Tsu, Personal Assistant to the Principal, at the general office before 4th December 2015.

This year, our school will be using an e-voting system, “Simply Voting” to run the election. Parents can vote by logging into the Gateway and accessing the e-voting platform via the listed hyperlinks.

If you have any questions, please contact Susanna Chiu at

Yours sincerely,
