Make a Difference - Become a School Trustee

|| April 27, 2016

2016 is the Board of Trustees election year.  Parent representatives hold five seats on the One Tree Hill College Board of Trustees for a three year term of office. 

The Board of Trustees is the Crown entity responsible for the governance of the school. The Board is the employer of all staff in the school and is responsible for setting the school's strategic direction in consultation with parents, staff and students, and for ensuring that its school provides a safe environment and high quality education for all its students.

Being a School Trustee is an important and rewarding role.  Parents, caregivers and people from the wider community can all be trustees.  We’re looking for a range of people with a variety of skills and experiences, who believe in making a positive difference to our student’s learning.
