Our Board of Directors

The Board of Directors of Villa Maria College Christchurch Limited (VMCCL) consists of a Board of ten directors entrusted by the Sisters of Mercy, Nga Whaea Atawhai O Aotearoa, to preserve and nurture their Mercy ministry in Catholic education.

The two key strategic objectives of VMCCL are to maintain and preserve the special character of the College, and to provide good stewardship of the land and buildings.
Monthly meetings are held to discuss and make decisions on matters regarding special character, strategic planning, capital development, and finance. VMCCL representatives also sit on the Villa Maria College Board of Trustees as a Proprietor Trustee.
