Governance

Board of Management

Joytown Secondary School is governed by a Board of Management in compliance to the statutory regulations. The Board of Governors is comprised of old students from Joytown, representatives of The Salvation Army Church, the school principal and other stakeholders.

The Board oversee and deliberate on all maters pertaining to development and general welfare of the school.

Parents Association

The Parents Teacher Association (PA) is concerned with the welfare of the students in all maters relating to academic performance and student welfare at the school.

All parents are automatically a member of the PA if you are the parent/carer of a student a t S.A. Joytown Secondary School School – so welcome!

The role of the PA is currently three fold:

  • Coordinates activities to raise funds for those little extras, beyond S.A. Joytown Secondary School’s own remit, which makes life more enjoyable for the students;
  • Provides parental feedback, good or bad, on School-related issues to the Senior Management Team, with whom we have regular meetings;
  • Takes up parents’/carers’ issues with School which have not been resolved through the normal channels – anonymously where necessary;

In addition to which the PA Chairperson sits on the Management Board as a representative of the views of parents/carers, in a similar way to both the Staff and Student Leader.
