From humble beginnings, where 28 students sat in the Sunday School Hall of St Mark’s Anglican Church, in February 1959 – TIGS now has over 900 students from Pre-Preparatory to Year 12. This long-term expansion is only possible because of the leadership and strategic vision of the School Council.
The School Council is not involved with the day-to-day activities of the School, but rather ensure that the overarching policies and frameworks are rigorous and accountable. The majority of Council members are elected by the Synod and have a wide range of experience in professional and community leadership. The Most Reverend Dr Glenn Davies, Archbishop of Sydney, presides over School Council as President, with Professor Tony Okely as the Chair leading the regular activities of School Council.
TIGS School Council is the driving force behind the School’s growth and progress and has developed a Strategic Vision to take us through to 2022. It is a wonderful example of collaboration involving staff, students, parents and friends. An extensive survey process and stakeholder focus groups helped inform the outcome.
The keen involvement of our community was crucial to the preparation of our Strategic Vision for TIGS, and represents the desires and aspirations of the whole TIGS community.
