Modernisation of Constitution
The Board operates under a key governing document or Constitution which is called the Memorandum and Articles of Association.
The Memorandum and Articles of Association set out the objects of the Company and contain provisions about membership, the number of directors, the appointment of directors, proceedings at meetings and general meetings, voting powers, accounts and other matters.
The Memorandum and Articles of Association were established in 1976 and have not been substantially updated to reflect the many changes in laws and regulations that apply to Redlands since that time.
The Board is proposing to update the Memorandum and Articles of Association to reflect these changes. This updated Constitution will be put to Members for their approval at a meeting to be held this year. If members of our community are interested in learning more about Constitutional modernisation at our School you can review the following documents below:
- The School’s current constitution – Memorandum and Articles of Association (1976)
- The proposed amended constitution – Compliant Constitution (2023)
- Memorandum that explains the proposed amendments to the Memorandum of Association and the reasons for these proposed changes – Explanatory Memorandum (2023)
