Governing Body

Morogoro International School has always been a not-for-profit organisation. The school’s governing body is called the Board. It is composed of up to 16 volunteers, parents past and present, who are elected during the annual general meeting.  The Board sets the strategic direction and goals for MIS and defines school policies. In order to be eligible these volunteers must already be company members. Serving on the Board requires considerable commitment, but can be a rewarding and learning experience.

Board Meetings

The Board holds one meeting during each half term to discuss and take action where necessary on various issues with an AGM held at the end of the academic year when the performance of the school and the Governing Body are reviewed and a new Board is elected. At present there are four sub-committees set up to focus on the key areas of Strategic Planning, Capital Development and Maintenance, Finance and Health and Safety.

Annual General Meetings (AGM)

The next Annual General Meeting will take place in September 2018.
Only parents who are approved Company Members can vote at AGMs. Any parent can apply to become a company member as long as there isn’t already a company member in the family.
