The Chair of Council appoints the Rector, who is a full member of Council. The Superintendent Chaplain is a Council member. The College Executive Committee members are invited attendees at Council meetings.
The St Stithians Foundation was created by the Trust and the Council in 2002 to contribute to the long term sustainability of St Stithians College. Foundation governors are appointed according to approved terms of reference.
