Two schools, one mission

THE CHAIRMAN of Moreton Bay College, Mr Geoff Diehm QC, has announced an amalgamation of the governance structures for Moreton Bay College (MBC) and Moreton Bay Boys’ College (MBBC) from 1 July, 2011.

The first steps in the amalgamation will be to reorganise the current Board structure.

While there will still be a separate Board for each school, they will have common membership.

The members will be drawn from the existing MBBC and MBC Boards.

Following the departure of Dr Rod Crouch (Principal MBBC) in June to take up a position overseas, Ms Jennifer Haynes, current MBC Principal, has been appointed to the position of Principal at both Colleges from 1 July, 2011.

Since the establishment of MBBC in 2003, both Boards have worked closely together to ensure consistency of ethos and values across the schools and this step will strengthen that relationship.

The Queensland Synod of the Uniting Church will continue to appoint a majority of the members of the new Board.
