B.   COURT OF PATRONS

     ORIGIN
     The Court of Patrons was instituted in 1956 in order to give the Council additional
     opportunities of honouring the benefactors of the College.

     MEMBERSHIP
     The Court of Patrons consists of individual men and women elected by the
     Council in recognition of their outstanding services to the College. Election to the
     Court of Patrons should be made very sparingly and active interest in the College
     and encouragement of its affairs rather than acts of benefaction should be regarded
     as grounds for election.

     NOMINATIONS
     Nomination is normally at the discretion of the President but Members of Council
     may if they wish, submit a one page letter of recommendation to the Committee
     Chairman in which contributions are defined.

     Principal headings
      Outstanding services to the College
      Encouragement of the affairs of the College
      Major benefactions
