Old Boys’ Union Triennial Election of Five OBU Members to School Council

Notice of Nominations

The Ordinance of ‘Sydney Church of England Grammar School’ allows for the appointment of five members of the Shore OBU to the School Council every three years. This is a privilege granted to the OBU by the Anglican Church.

During the recent nomination period, ten members were nominated for the five available positions as Old Boy representatives on School Council.

There are two current members who are seeking re-election and eight further members have been nominated. Therefore under the Constitution of the Shore OBU, a ballot of members is required to elect our five Representatives.
