The Board of Trustees is made up of the Principal, Proprietor Trustees, Parent Trustees, a Staff Trustee, and a Student Trustee. Parent and Staff Trustees are elected every three years, the student Trustee is elected annually, and the Proprietor Trustees are appointed by our College Proprietor.

The Board of Trustees is a Crown entity and is responsible for the governance of our College. The role of our Trustees is to ensure the College has a clear sense of purpose by establishing its strategic objectives, documenting these objectives in a College charter, and monitoring progress in achieving these objectives.

The Board closely monitors students achievement to assure themselves that students are receiving a high quality standard of education, and that resources are being used prudently to ensure the highest possible quality programmes are provided for our students.


Should you wish to make contact with the Board of Trustees, please contact the Principal’s Secretary on (03) 348 4165.
