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.

Latest News

At the recent Board of Trustees' meeting on Wednesday 21 June, we had a faculty presentation from the English Faculty which gave the board an insight into the faculty from a teaching perspective and what the faculty has been and will be focusing on for their students.

Along with the monthly presentations so far, the board has also had two evenings where the College faculty leaders have presented their results for the 2016 year, these giving the board an understanding of the results, the trends over the last few years and what each faculty is focusing on to improve the results going forward. The faculty leaders and their respective teams have done and continue to do a great job working with and encourage our students to work to their best abilities.

We also reviewed the final itinerary for the Concert Band’s Sydney Trip and the proposed Vietnam Trip in 2018 and these were signed off.

Two NAGS (National Administration Guidelines) were also reviewed, updated where required and approved, these being NAG 5 – Health and Safety and NAG 6 Legislative Requirements.
