Governance

The School is governed by the Arden Anglican School Council which allows for twelve persons elected by the Synod of the Anglican Diocese of Sydney and two other persons appointed by the Archbishop.

Council seeks to serve the Arden community by ensuring long term planning is undertaken, appropriate policies are implemented and that finances are managed in a prudent manner.

Council meets on the first Wednesday of each month during term time. There are three Committees of the Council:

  • Finance
  • Governance
  • Property Development and Planning

The day-to-day operations of the School are managed by the Principal who is appointed by, and reports to, the Council. The School provides a Christian education according to the doctrines and principles of the Anglican Church of Australia.
