Governance

GSIS has a Board of Directors who bring a wealth of experience to their role to offer support and advice and also shape the future strategy of the school whilst bringing scrutiny to all the aspects of running the school. It comprises a group of people, mostly current parents, who voluntarily contribute a varied and differing range of skills and experiences to achieve a balanced and diverse Board. Their specialist knowledge provides invaluable support to the Principal, Chief Administrative Officer and Senior Management Team through the various sub committees.

GSIS is a company limited by guarantee and granted charitable status by the Hong Kong Inland Revenue Department. It is bound to comply with Hong Kong Company Law and the requirements set out in the Hong Kong Education Ordinance. The Board elects from its Directors the Chair who convenes and presides over all meetings and who acts for and on behalf of the Association. Members of the Association and persons nominated by the School Board can become members of a number of sub-committees, which all parents are welcome to join.
