The OS Committee organises and manages the OS-specific events and sport
The Committee works with the recommendations and guidance of the SVS Foundation Council and the School to create, promote and manage various Old Suttonian events and sporting activities through the course of the year. The Committee, through its Chairman, can make recommendations to the Council regarding funding and the scope for future events and it reports to the Council on past events and sporting activities.
The Committee is formed of 12 individuals. This is made up of nine selected Old Suttonian members, as well as three permanent members. The three permanent members are the School's Director of Admissions and Development (ex-officio), the School's Development Assistant (ex-officio) and the SVS Foundation Archivist and Keeper of Records (appointed). The nine selected members serve for two-year terms. They include the Old Suttonians' Chairman (who also sits on the SVS Foundation Council), the Old Suttonians' Dinner Secretary, the Old Suttonians' Girls' Sports Secretary, the Old Suttonian Boys' Sports Secretary and a further five Old Suttonians. The current representatives on the Old Suttonians' Committee are listed above.
The Committee may appoint one or more sub-committees for such purposes as it may deem appropriate. As part of that process the Committee may co-opt any one or more members of the Association to report on the Activities of the sub-committees.
The Committee meets once per academic term, with all meetings taking place at the School, unless stipulated otherwise. Extraordinary meetings of the Committee, beyond these standard three meetings per year, can be called by the Old Suttonians' Chairman or the SVS Foundation Council, if deemed necessary. The agenda for Committee meetings will be set by the Chairman and SVS Director of Admissions and Development. It will reflect the instruction of the SVS Foundation Council, which may request certain activities or events are discussed.
