This year, there are three vacancies to be filled, two for Category 1* and one for Category 2**. Parents of Jockey Club Sarah Roe School may stand in either category.

A parent is eligible to stand for election provided that he / she is not an ESF employee or the spouse of an ESF employee.

A proposer and a seconder, who must be parents / guardians with children in ESF primary, secondary or all-through schools, are required for a candidate to stand for election.
