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.

March Meeting : Wednesday 21 March 2018 – Community Update

The Board of Trustees had our second meeting last week with the College.

Initial drainage work on the Quad has begun and we are waiting on the Ministry to approve construction and landscaping to begin in the April school holidays as planned.  We are grateful to the Parents' Association who have kindly agreed to pay for the plants.

Mrs Hewetson, Deputy Principal, gave the board an excellent update on the Middle Years Programme and the work being carried out by school staff to successfully implement the programme.   The work required is school-wide, which means the coordination and effort is considerable.  Progress has been very good, and it was interesting to hear staff trustee Ms Stone, Head of Drama, give a staff perspective of the challenges faced.  The board is grateful for the efforts of all staff in preparing for and implementing MYP.
