An initial “steering committee” was replaced by a formally elected Board drawn from members of Heritage College Perth Incorporated, prior to the opening of the College in 2006.
In any venture such as this, sound governance by people with relevant knowledge and experience is essential. Some of the College Board’s key responsibilities are to:
- manage and control all assets, budgets and finances;
- establish and maintain College policies;
- review and approve curricula;
- review and approve staff appointments, remuneration, contracts and conditions; and,
- ensure that the College is a safe and secure learning environment for students.
The operations of the Board in a variety of areas are reviewed annually by State and Federal authorities. The annual report and financial statements are made available to members of the incorporated body who run the College at the AGM and are posted on this web site.
The principal of the College is appointed by the Board and his monthly reports inform the Board of the day to day operations of the College, and the implementation of the policies and directions chosen by the Board. The Principal is accountable to both state and federal bodies for implementing a sound academic program and managing a professional and competent teaching staff.
The College Board is comprised of five to seven members. Current board members are:
- Andrew Dedman
- Ben Derecki (Secretary)
- Nat Harrison (Treasurer)
- Greg Hurn
- Mason Linden (Chairman)
- Stuart Riddle
- Fran Schifferli
The Board welcomes feedback and the opportunity to discuss ways in which we can continue to improve our College and ensure it is the best place to educate and grow our students. We also take concerns or grievances very seriously and are more than happy to discuss concerns about the College in line with our considered policy (refer below).
