These events are part of a series organised by the Transferor Representatives’ Council (TRC) – which represents the Church of Ireland, the Methodist Church in Ireland and the Presbyterian Church in Ireland in education in Northern Ireland – in conjunction with the Controlled Schools’ Support Council.  The series will continue with four more events over the month of February (also 7.30–9.30pm):

To reserve a place please contact Mrs Claire Geoghegan (claire.geoghegan@rcbdub.org) or call 028 9082 8860.

The TRC would wish to thank all those who have volunteered to be Transferor Governors in the school period 2018–2022. These evenings will give us the opportunity to outline the unique role of a Transferor Governor, and to meet with Transferor Governors and find out how TRC and CSSC can support them in their role.

Attendees will be able to meet with members of TRC and find out how TRC represents the Transferor Governors at all levels in education.

If you’re interested in coming along, please do check out the following video which provides an outline of the role, and its opportunities and responsibilities in promoting a Christian ethos in schools.
