Bowmore School Council Elections: Important Dates


SchoolSupportAt Bowmore, an election for school council members is done in two parts. A May election selects the Chair, Treasurer, and QSP Committee Chair for the following school year and a September election completes the Council by selecting the remaining Committee Chairs and additional Executive Members. This allows Bowmore School Council to begin its school year with key Executive Members already in place.
