Governance – College Board

Our College Board’s role is to provide policy leadership and support for the college.

Members of the Board participate in the development and review of college priorities (through the Business Plan development) and general policy directions. As a College Board for an Independent Public School, the Board has a financial oversight responsibility; to develop financial arrangements necessary to fund college objectives and priorities. The Board plays a role in the evaluation of the performance of the college in achieving its objectives.

In addition, the Board promotes the college in the community. The College Board also participates in formulating college values, codes of conduct and the dress code for students. Other functions are outlined in sections 70, 99(4), 100 (3), 108 (2) and 216(5) of the School Education Act, 1999.

In 2011 when the college became an Independent Public School, the role of our College Board changed to board governance through increased participation and decision making.

Members of the Board are from a diverse range of backgrounds. The current board members include parents, teachers, administrators, industry, and university academics. Each member brings a unique perspective to the board and this reflects the views of the general population.
