School Board

Our board works with the school community to achieve the best outcomes for students. It plays an important role in contribution to good school governance so that school resources are used efficiently, and community expectations and the school’s priorities reflect the needs of students. 

The functions of our board is covered by legislation and include both approval and advisory roles. Some of the matters our board may make decisions on include gees and charges, book lists, sponsorship and dress codes. Our board makes these decisions with the principal and others who ensure the decisions adhere to legislative and policy requirements. 

Our Principals may also seek the advice of our board to inform themselves before making management decisions. Board members have the right to understand the principals’ decisions (except where they involve confidential information). The board does not intervene in the control or management of the school. This is the role of the principal. 

To contact our board, you can email the chair at boardchair@deanmoreps.wa.edu.au.

As Principal at Deanmore Primary School I am privileged to work with our school to celebrate the work of our staff, students and community. I look forward to continuing our journey insuring our students are provided with opportunities to learn, create and discover.

I have two children at Deanmore with a third bub at home. I have been a teacher for the last 20 years with a focus on children with special needs and have completed a Bachelor and Masters of Education. I believe that all children should be celebrated for their individual strengths while given every opportunity to discover strengths they have yet to develop.

As one of the Deputy Principals of Deanmore Primary School, I feel extremely privileged to work in such a beautiful community, which is comprised of hard working students and staff, and very supportive and caring parents and carers. With my extensive teaching and Administration experience, I have developed the strong belief that as adults it is our responsibility to be advocates for all students to ensure that all of their academic, social and emotional needs are met and adequately catered for. With the ever changing world that we live in, it is important that as a school we prepare students with the necessary knowledge and skills to cope with the various challenges that they will face in the future. With both of my parents being teachers and my genuine care for others, it was no surprise that ever since I was in primary school I wanted teaching to be my career, which I have and will always love    

I have been a member of the Deanmore community for over 8 years and joined the School Board in 2020. With my eldest graduating from Deanmore last year, I have two children still at Deanmore, Dylan in Year 5 and Marcus in Year 3. I have been employed as a Psychologist with the Department of Justice for over 17 years, having also worked in corrective services whilst living in Melbourne. I have most recently worked in Director and Senior Psychologist roles with offenders. I am passionate about creating a positive and supportive community for our children, building resilience in their emotional and social learning, and in all areas of their education. I greatly value the opportunity to be part of the Deanmore School Board and look forward to contributing to the school’s policy development and business plan.

I am a proud former Deanmore student and now a proud Deanmore parent. I’m looking forward to being a part of and contributing to the development of the schools’ future policy priorities and aspirational direction and targets. I have a diverse professional background and network, with experience across the public, private and not for profit sectors. I am a strong advocate for the school and our community and am honoured by the opportunity to serve on the Deanmore Board.

I joined the Deanmore community last year and my oldest child is now in Pre-Primary.  I bring a diversity of experience from my Human Resources career, ranging from global lead roles in large multinationals to working with local indigenous communities in regional Australia, and my focus is to create positive, sustainable experiences for our employees and communities.  I am passionate about quality public school education and proud to represent our parents on the School Board.

 

I have been a member of the Deanmore community since 2014 and joined the school board in 2020 with my two daughters, Livinia year 4 and Milly year 2 currently attending Deanmore. I have been employed primarily in the industrial automation industry and am currently the state General Manager for SAGE Automation, My wife Katherine and I were both raised in Melbourne and moved to sunny Perth in 2012. I am an advocate for children to be given the opportunity to learn in an environment free from bullying and challenging children both academically and through sports to build strong and independent adults. I am looking forward to being a board member and am very keen to assist the school with technology studies.
