Farewell John Boag

Annual Board AGM and a farewell to Mr John Boag

The 101st year of Calrossy has been a challenging time for us all.  Having endured the worst drought on record and survived nearby bushfires, our school community is currently working with the uncertainty and challenges posed by COVID-19. However, what is heartening is that Calrossy has stayed strong, demonstrating great resilience amongst our students and families. Amidst these concerns our Board of directors has steered our school through these unprecedented times with steadfastness and expertise, working closely with the School Executive.

Last night the Calrossy Board AGM was conducted with members either attending in person or by Zoom. At the conclusion of the meeting, Chairman David Lamb thanked John Boag for 27 years of faithful service as a Board Member and servant of the school, providing legal acumen and assistance to support the Calrossy Anglican School vision. Part of Mr Boag’s 27 years was spent on the Council of William Cowper Anglican School, prior to the amalgamation with Calrossy. His daughters were educated in the school during his tenure. The Board presented Mr Boag with a decorative timber chair made from Australian Hardwood in recognition of his service supporting the governance of Calrossy.


Official business of the AGM included  the re-election of Mr David Lamb as Chair of the Calrossy Board and continuation of Mr Cameron Stewart as Deputy Chair. New members of the Board include Mrs Kim Scott (Finance Committee) and Mrs Trish Moore (Parent Representative.) Following a break of a year Mrs Penny Blomfield re-joins as a Boarder parent representative.


The AGM affirmed the Board’s commitment to the Christian ethos of the school, development of the Calrossy Masterplan, strong corporate governance and careful financial stewardship, ensuring excellent education in the school and the continuing provision of a strong foundation for our graduates.


Our community can rest assured in the knowledge that the future of Calrossy is in safe hands as we enter our school’s next chapter, moving towards 2021 and some exciting future developments.
