Our Annual General Meeting was held on the evening of 24 May in our new Senior School.  In my report I highlighted the extensive progress of the College over 2016 – particularly from a governance standpoint.

In particular:

  • The successful adoption of our revised Constitution in March 2016. The changes brought our Constitution into line with legislative requirements and governance best practice and was the culmination of nearly 14 years’ work.
  • The extensive preparations and planning that saw the financial separation from Trinity College enabling Investigator College to commence 2017 as a completely independent organisation.
    This process saw financial, system and database preparation and separation.
  • Two major building projects commenced in 2016: the Senior School and a Technology Centre at the Victor Harbor Campus. Again – the Senior School is the culmination of some 5 years’ work by the College Board.
  • The completion of our Federal Government application for a Trade Skills Centre Grant for development of our Currency Creek site. This has since been granted and design work has commenced.
  • Of particular note was the fact that all of these significant and critical undertakings could occur while the College continued to operate, producing outstanding
    results for our students –
    not the least of which
    were our Year 12 results.

The full Principal’s report [including data required for public publication under the Federal Education Act 2013] will be available shortly on our website.

Commitment, Responsibility and Contribution

The College holds as one of its Core Values the expectation that we develop Commitment, Responsibility and Contribution
in our students. One of the best ways to teach this is by our demonstration as staff and volunteers at the College.

Our College Board is made up of committed volunteers. At the AGM the Association confirmed Georgina Ashworth’s appointment as an Association appointment to the Board.

Members of the Board are now:

Dr Ted Sandercock
[SA Anglican System appointment]

Rev Ian Young
[SA Anglican System appointment]

Mr David Basham

Mrs Rachel Elliott

Mrs Georgina Ashworth

Dr Alan Mills

Mrs Anna Jones

Mr Phil Pynor

Mr Don Grimmett

Finally the Association acknowledged the faithful commitment and service of Mr Wayne Smith by the presentation of an Investigator College Life Membership Award – an award presented to individuals who have rendered extended and distinguished service particularly in the establishment, development, promotion and/or advancement of the College.

Wayne Smith commenced his association with Investigator College in late 2000 when he was instrumental in the re-establishment of Glendale College following the closure of Glendale Christian School. Working as part of the Trinity College ‘rescue team,’ Wayne played a critical role in ensuring clear financial parameters, assisted in resource allocation and the control of expenses during the very tenuous early days of the College.

Wayne provided the College with expert fiscal advice and knowledge. His contribution [particularly] to the reestablishment of the College in 2001 was vital to the survival of the College and something for which the College Board and community will be ever grateful.

Mr Don Grimmett
