Incorporated Board Constitution

Dear Parents and Carers,

The Willetton Senior High School Board is convening a Special General Meeting to alter the rules in order to meet the requirements of the Associations Incorporation Act 2015.

As a special general meeting, it is necessary that we have a minimum number of families represented at this meeting.  We ask that any adult family representative who is usually present for student pick up, or is available, to please attend our special general meeting.

In order to ensure we meet the minimum number of families required to adopt the new rules, could you please RSVP your attendance to the Executive Officer Helen Wong by email helen.s.wong@education.wa.edu.au  or phone 9334 7217by Friday November 29, 2019.
 
NOTICE OF SPECIAL GENERAL MEETING TO ALTER THE RULES
 
Willetton Senior High School Council and Parents and Citizens’ Association Incorporated [A0821035R registered 04/04/1984]

Willetton Senior High School Council Incorporated
[A1010742N registered 19/12/2002] operating as the Willetton Senior High School Board is convening a special general meeting at which the following resolutions will be proposed as special resolutions to alter the rules of the Associations.
 
The meeting will be held at 3.00pm on Thursday December 5, 2019.       
 
Special Resolutions
 
Special Resolution 1
To amalgamate the Willetton Senior High School Council Incorporated Association (A1010742N registered 19/12/2002) into Willetton Senior High School Council and Parents and Citizens’ Association Incorporated (A0821035R registered 04/04/1984).

Rationale:  The Willetton Senior High School Board (operational name) operates under two incorporated associations (listed above). The Willetton Senior High School Council Incorporated is believed to have been established through the Independent Public School process.  However only one incorporated association is necessary for the functions of the Willetton Senior High School Board from here onwards. No assets or liabilities are associated with Willetton Senior High School Council Incorporated association.  Presently all financial functions of the Willetton Senior High School Board are conducted under Willetton Senior High School Council and Parents and Citizens’ Association Incorporated. The Willetton Senior High School Board voted unanimously to amalgamate the Willetton Senior High School Council Incorporated Association (A1010742N registered 19/12/2002) into Willetton Senior High School Council and Parents and Citizens’ Association Incorporated (A0821035R registered 04/04/1984) (Board Meeting 31/10/2019).
 
Special Resolution 2
To change the name of Willetton Senior High School Council and Parents and Citizens’ Association Incorporated to Willetton Senior High School Board.

Rationale:  For many years, the Willetton Senior High School Council and Parents and Citizens’ Association Incorporated and Willetton Senior High School Council Incorporated has been known as the Willetton Senior High School Board.  The change of name to Willetton Senior High School Board will now reflect the name most widely recognised in the school community and will be less confusing for members and the public.   The Willetton Senior High School Board voted unanimously to change the name of Willetton Senior High School Council and Parents and Citizens’ Association Incorporated (A0821035R registered 04/04/1984) to Willetton Senior High School Board (Board Meeting 31/10/2019).
 
Special Resolution 3.
To accept the new Western Australian Department of Education Standard Constitution for Incorporated School Councils issued (see attached) which will replace the current constitution.

Rationale:  The new rules issued by the Department of Education have been revised to comply with the Associations Incorporation Act 2015 and have been authorised by the Minster for Education.  The Willetton Senior High School Board have reviewed the newly issued rules by the Department of Education and have endorsed its adoption (Board Meeting 31/10/2019).
