Can you repeal a constitution?

I'm working for a subsidiary organization that has an outdated constitution and by-laws. The structure is so different from the current model constitution of the parent organization that it would seem easier to just strike the original one and replace it, rather than amending specific articles. My question is, given that there is no direction in the constitution itself about a complete overhaul (only how to amend it), can you repeal an entire constitution? Is "repeal" even the right term?
