The Board of Trustees is the Crown entity responsible for the governance and the control of the management of the school.  The Board is the employer of all staff in the school, is responsible for setting the school's strategic direction in consultation with parents, staff and students, and ensuring that its school provides a safe environment and quality education for all its students.  The Board is also responsible for overseeing the management of personnel, curriculum, property, finance and administration.

The structure of the Glendowie College Board of Trustees is as follows:

  • Five Parent Elected Trustees
  • The Principal
  • One Staff Elected Trustee
  • One Student Elected Trustee (Annual election)

The Board welcomes the Year 9’s to the college, the Year 9's Parents' evening was well attended and it was great to parents and staff there, and listen to the presentations from a couple of the houses. The Board also reviewed the documentation for the upcoming Year 9 camps.  A big thank you to the staff and senior students for organising and going along on these camps in support of the year 9’s.  

Over the holidays, a lot of work had taken place within the college campus, in particular with the relocation of some buildings in preparation for the commencement of the Science Block building, it is great that we have finally reached this point.

Finally, it is very pleasing that the college started the year fully staffed, a number of new teachers have joined the college, welcome to you all.”
