The importance of good governance of a school cannot be overstated.

Not everyone may realise that the ultimate success or failure of Beaconhills College rests with our Board of Directors. Board members volunteer their time and expertise to ensure the financial health of the College, to steer us through the waters of risk and compliance and determine the policies that define the shape and purpose of the school. They ensure Christian values on which the College was founded are maintained. They don’t take any of these responsibilities lightly.

Last week we paid tribute to Board member Roger Lord, who has just concluded 19 years of dedicated service. Roger was awarded life membership of the College in recognition of his service.

Roger is a quiet achiever. This year marks the end of an amazing track record of involvement with our school, including the education of his own three children at Beaconhills.  His financial acumen has been invaluable, helping guide us through the challenges of the Global Financial Crisis and the growth and development of our two campuses. His keen involvement in all aspects of the College was always evident. At so many events, from official openings to exhibitions, displays and performances, Roger would be there, asking questions and taking a genuine interest in students and our educational programs.

A true example of citizenship and service in action. Thank you Roger.
