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.

February Meeting : Wednesday 21 February 2018 – Community Update

The Glendowie Board of Trustee’s held our first meeting of the year with the College having had a busy start to 2018.

The Year 9 parents' evening was very well attended and it was great to hear Mrs Hewetson’s Middle Years Program (MYP) update. The following week the Year 9s went on camp and while the weather tried to interfere, the camps went well, thanks to all the staff who attended these camps.

Mr Dykes reported back to the board on the provisional NCEA results and the 2017 scholarships, Glendowie College again shone and the Board was particularly pleased with the scholarship results. The college held a morning tea for the students and families to celebrate their achievement.

On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank the teaching and support staff and senior leadership team for the huge amount of work you all put in through the year to allow our students to continue to achieve results at this level.


Steve Collier
Board of Trustees Chairperson
