School Board

The Board of the DSK is responsible for directing the business affairs of the school according to the School Association’s Constitution, and for fulfilling its fiduciary, advisory and oversight duties.

There are up to ten voting members on the Board. Nine of whom are elected at the AGM of the School Association in a two-year cycle, with the tenth member being appointed by the Lutheran Church. The Board may co-opt up to four additional non-voting members at any time. In addition, a member of the German Consulate takes part in Board meetings as a non-voting member.

The Board enjoys a close working relationship with school management and school administration, with the Principal, the Deputy Principal, as well as the Bursar, being part of Board meetings.

There are monthly Board meetings throughout the term, as well as other extra meetings as needed. There are five elected offices within the Board: Chair, Deputy Chair (two), Secretary and Treasurer and four standing committees: Finance, Personnel, Building Works and Marketing. In addition to these committees, Board members are responsible for their own designated portfolios/committees, supporting a specific field of the school.
