College Board

Governance

Star of the Sea College is a company limited by guarantee and as such, is subject to the Corporations Act 2001 and the regulations of the Australian Securities & Investments Commission (ASIC). 

Star of the Sea College was established in 1883 by the Presentation Sisters who own and administer the school. 

The Presentation Sisters have entrusted the governance of the College to a Board of Directors and these Directors are appointed by the Sisters. 

The functions of the Board are established in common and statute law, and high standards of due diligence are required from all directors and officers of the company in their duties and responsibilities. 

The Board comprises dedicated people with a range of talents and backgrounds. It is committed to the governance of the College in line with the Presentation ethos. 

The Board meets regularly throughout the year.
