Governance

The French International School ‘Victor Segalen’ Association Limited is a non-profit company limited by guarantee without a share capital, incorporated under the Hong Kong Companies Ordinance, and managed by a Board of elected individuals. Anyone holding an Individual or Corporate Debenture is de facto a member and the Association meets at least one a year for its Annual General Meeting.

The Board of Directors brings a wealth of experience to offer support and advice to ensure clarity of vision, strategic direction and fiduciary oversight while bringing scrutiny to all aspects of running the school. The Board meets once every four to six weeks and is independent from the day-to-day and operational running of the school. Also various committees are established to bring specialist knowledge and valuable support as advisory bodies to the Board in specific areas.

The school's articles of association include the provision of school councils. The schoolwide council is called Victor Segalen Council (Conseil Victor Segalen). In line with the articles, "the school councils provide the head of school with advice, consultation, and support with respect to educational matters at the school". Chaired by the Head of School, the CVS is consultative in nature and composed of school leaders, parent, student, and faculty and staff representatives. It is usually preceded by division-specific councils (primary / secondary), chaired by their respective divisional leaders
