About the BOT

The Board comprises parent representatives, who are elected every three years by the parent community, the Principal, and staff and student representatives.

The next election is on 7 June 2019, please see timeline and information below. A copy of the roll will be available from Thursday 9 May 2019.

It co-opts members as needed to maintain an appropriate mix of relevant skills and experience. It controls the management of the College, although day to day administration is delegated, and it sets the principal long and short term objectives through the charter and the strategic and annual plans.

The Board monitors performance – including student achievement – against the objectives and national guidelines.

It determines major policies, sets the budget and ensures that the College is financially sound, decides how property funding is to be used, and adjudicates serious disciplinary issues.

Much of this work is carried out by the several committees: property and ICT, finance, personnel, and parent support.

The Board meets annually with all department heads to review needs and performance.
