Roll of Electors

Roll of Electors

The School is governed by a Board of Trustees consisting of seven members: three elected by subscribers or donors to the School, and four appointed by the Governor in Council. The Trustees hold office for four years and at the end of that time are eligible for re-election or re-appointment. The next election will be held in 2018.

The School’s Electoral By-Laws, made under the Grammar Schools Regulations 2004 provide that any person making a single gift of at least $500 and less than $2000 will be entitled to vote in the electoral cycle during which the gift was made. The Board has determined that a person making a single gift of $2000 or more will be entitled to a perpetual or Life vote.

The School maintains a comprehensive Roll of Electors based on eligibility criteria determined in accordance with the School’s By-Laws and current and past provisions of the Grammar Schools Regulations 2004. Eligible electors can expect to be offered the opportunity to vote in the Board of Trustees elections.
