The Council of Governors (CoG) is the strategic body tasked with the long-term success, financial health and well-being of the Alice Smith School. It is the governing body of the Alice Smith Schools Association (ASSA). Find out more about the Council...
1. How the school is governed
The Council of Governors is made up of between fifteen (15) and eighteen (18) members, comprising seven (7) Trustee Governors, up to ten (10) Ordinary (Parent) Governors and the Chair of the Parent Teachers Association (PTA). All governors serve on a pro-bono basis. The Ordinary (Parent) Governors and Chair of PTA are appointed through election.
Trustee Governors are appointed by their respective organisations. Currently the Trustee organisations are the following:
- St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church
- St. Mary’s Cathedral
- Royal Society of St. George
- Selangor St. Andrew’s Society
- St. Patrick’s Society of Selangor
- Malaysian International Chamber of Commerce (MICCI)
- Malaysian, Australian and New Zealand Association (MANZA)
All Governors have an equal vote in any decisions made by the Council of Governors. However, at meetings of the Association, (like the Annual General Meeting) a Trustee Governor has five votes, while an Ordinary (Parent) Governor, and all parent members of the Association, have one vote.
2. What does the Council do?
The role of the Council of Governors is to function at a strategic level in order to ensure the long-term institutional stability and perpetuation of the Association and the overall well-being of the School.
The Council does strictly not get involved with operational matters such as staff recruitment, the curriculum or assessment, student registration or any other matters related to the day-to-day management of the School.
