Board Chairman

We are a Christian Educational Community that seeks to transform lives for Christ through teaching and learning excellence, founded on Biblically based beliefs, values and behaviour.

We have a distinctly Christian ethos and require teachers and staff who are Christians and teach from a Biblical perspective.

We develop the values and gifts of our students.

We believe a distinctly Christian Education requires among other things excellence in individual academic effort and a culture of service.

Students are encouraged to see the opportunities to serve in community locally, nationally and internationally. This ethos of service is also present in the lives of our staff.

We are continually encouraged by the gifts and values our students develop and evidence in their time at Pacific Hills. These are seen in their academic, sporting and cultural achievements and activities. We are also excited by the passion of our students to serve others and the life lessons they learn through doing so.

Mr Stephen Trew
Chairman

Board Structure

Pacific Hills Christian School is operated by the company Pacific Hills Christian Education Limited.

This company:

  • is a not for profit Public company
  • is limited by guarantee
  • has a Board of Directors made up of Christians from a number of denominations and churches.

Directors are appointed by the Board to fill casual vacanices or elected by the Membership at the company’s Annual General Meeting (held in May each year). Initial terms of Board membership are for three years. Directors may be re elected for a further term of three years.The Board comprises directors with a broad range of gifts and professional expertise, who volunteer their time (other than the Principal). There is a balance between those with a direct involvement in Pacific Hills (as parents) and those with involvement in other key areas of service. This helps to broaden the Board's understanding of key issues.

The Board of Pacific Hills generally operates according to the “Carver” model of Governance.

The Board appoints a Chief Executive Officer (the Principal) who is charged with the daily operational responsibilities of the School. The Board focuses its agenda to matters of company policy and of providing direction to the CEO about the future Vision of the School and to developing plans towards achieving that vision.
