Board of Governors – Expressions of Interest

Board of Governors Expressions of Interest

Closing date: December 13, 2019

Dandenong Ranges Steiner School (DRSS) is seeking expressions of interest from people with relevant skills to serve on its Board of Governors.

The school is moving to a skills-based Board of Governors and is seeking Board members with an active interest or involvement in Steiner education of at least two years and with demonstrated experience or knowledge in an area of skill suitable to the Board (such as accounting, finance, law, business management, information technology, governance, property, risk management, anthroposophy, education, health and wellbeing, marketing, human resources, community service, or some other area of relevance).

This is a voluntary position and there is capacity for electronic attendance at Board meetings for those living outside Victoria.

Established in 1995 as a Kindergarten, and Primary School in 1999, DRSS employs a faculty of passionate and hard-working teachers to deliver a comprehensive Steiner educational program to 180+ students from Early Childhood to Class 6, plus a thriving Playgroup program.

Located in the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges, the school operates from two sites, the Early Childhood Campus in Menzies Creek and the Primary Campus adjacent to Cardinia Reservoir parklands, 48km east of Melbourne CBD. The school operates in architecturally designed classrooms set within bushland, creating an educationally stimulating and environmentally sustainable site.

We would warmly welcome hearing from people with relevant skills who might be willing to serve on our Board for an initial period of one to two years, commencing in 2020. If you would like to express interest or would like further information regarding the role, please contact Business Manager, Cath Lanigan, at business.manager@drss.vic.edu.au or by phone (03) 8790 4797.

Please send expressions of interest by Friday, December 13, 2019.
