Board of Trustees

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)
  • Co-opted Trustees  (currently none)

The Board normally meet eight times per year, and also operate a 'Finance and Property' sub-committee.  Parents and other members of the community are welcome and encouraged to attend the Board meetings as observers.
