Board of Trustees
Governing Our Catholic Schools
As well as elected representatives the Board of Trustees of a Catholic School are required to have members representing the Proprietor. Most schools have four such members.
In Primary schools, the Parish Priest in consultation with the Principal, and in Diocesan Secondary schools, the Principal, makes these recommendations to the Bishop using the required form and appointment criteria.
Who are Propritors Appointees?
Proprietor’s Appointees on the Board are full members of the Board with all the same rights and obligations of other Board members. These trustees assist in preserving the Special Character and property of the school and are required to report to the Proprietor.
The Bishop sets criteria, as applicable, to be used in making recommendations and appointments.
