The Good Samaritan Education Assembly consists of at least 15 Members who are admitted in accordance with the requirements of its Statutes: one nominated by each of the Bishops of the five dioceses in which Good Samaritan schools are situated; three Good Samaritan Sisters nominated by the Superior; and others as nominated by the Superior.
From among this group, a minimum of seven Members are elected by their peers to the Governing Council. The Governing Council is authorised to act in the name of Good Samaritan Education.
Each Good Samaritan Education Member is also a Member of the Company for either one or two Good Samaritan schools and, as such, is involved in the life of the school communities.

Members of the Governing Council
The role of Director in a Good Samaritan College offers an opportunity to work in partnership with others in the ministry of education within the mission of the Church. The Directors ensure that the best possible educational opportunities are offered to students within a faith community.
While people of goodwill from all walks of life may be appointed as Directors, the foremost requirement is that each comes with his or her own life experience, knowledge and gifts, and is prepared to share them for the benefit of the school community. Each Director appointed to a College Board must meet the requirements set out under the Corporations Act 2001 and the Australian Charities and Not-For-Profit Commission (ACNC).
Directors should have a sincere desire to grow in closeness to God, to live the Gospel life and to listen to the voice of the Spirit in order to contribute fully to the work of the Board.
