Board of Trustees

The objectives of the Huntley School Board of Trustees as specified in the Trust Deed are to

  • enable students to obtain an education of the highest order;
  • preserve the special character of the School and generally uphold the values and traditions of the (Anglican) Church;
  • secure the future financial viability of the School.

The Board has a Strategic Plan for the school which will take us to 2021.  The Plan will be available on the website shortly. 

The Board holds an Annual General Meeting towards the end of Term 1.  Board members meet monthly for half a day in term time.  Each Board member has an area or areas of responsibility which will bring them into school at other times depending on need.

All Board members are volunteers.  Membership is made up of 8 individuals.   We are currently recruiting for 2 new members (further details are available from the School until the end of February 2016).  Our present composition of 6 is as follows:
