Role of the Board
The business of SCEGGS Darlinghurst Limited, (“the Company”), is managed by its Board of Directors.
The role of the Board of Directors is to determine and maintain the mission and vision of the School and set long-term strategic directions and governing policies whilst supporting the Head in enacting the mission, vision and strategy of the School.
The School Constitution provides that there will be no fewer than three and no more than twelve directors unless the Company, in a general meeting by special resolution, changes the maximum number. Generally there are 11 Directors on the Board.
The constitution requires that the Board comprise nominees from:
- The Company itself
- The SCEGGS Old Girls’ Union
- The Sydney Diocese of the Anglican Church
The Company has elected six members of the Board. They are all parents or past parents of SCEGGS girls. At each AGM one third of the Directors elected by the members of the Company retire from office. They are eligible for re-election.
Two members of the Board are nominees of the Old Girls’ Union and four are nominees of the Diocese. The Constitution contains provisions for their appointment and removal.
