Board of Trustees

Dear Parents and Caregivers

The Board of Trustees has two parents interested in the vacant Parent Representative position on the Board.  Both of these parents have skills and attributes that are a good fit for our Board of Trustees.

We can have an election which would result in one of the parents being elected to the Board of Trustees.  The alternative is that the Board can discuss changing its constitution to allow six Parent Representatives to represent the community.  This would be a permanent change unless revoked.  Permission also needs to be sought from the Proprietor, and the Board of Trustees will do this.

If the Proprietor does not agree with this, the Board is required to proceed to an election for one position.  Similarly, if 10% or more of eligible voters expresses their opposition to this proposal at the upcoming Board meeting, an election will be required.

We hereby notify our parent community that we intend to discuss this matter at our Board of Trustees meeting which is to be held next Tuesday the 16th May at 6pm in the college Staffroom.  If any parents are interested in being part of this discussion, please come along to this meeting.

Kathy Sharpe
Chairperson, Board of Trustees
