School Board
Osborne Primary School

Jodie Scott – Board Chair and Parent

I have three children attending Osborne Primary and am therefore very keen to be involved of the school community. As chairperson of the School Board, I endeavour to make a positive contribution to the school, and look forward to being a part of the continued positive progression that Osborne Primary strives to achieve.

Lisa Summers – Secretary and Parent 

I have both Joshua and Isabelle attending Osborne Primary and love that they can be part of a school so close to our home in Stirling. I am proud of Osborne Primary and the contribution that the teachers and parents have made to both the children and community as a whole. I look forward to being an active member of the school board as we continue to strive for and participating in the future achievements.

Linda Griffin – Principal

As principal I value the input the board makes to the school’s strategic vision and its role in keeping us all accountable to our business plan and system obligations.  The board is a think tank that  supports our leadership team in making decisions that consider the needs of all stakeholders in our learning community.  It is a privilege to  be part of such a committed team.

Letty Stasev – Deputy Principal

I have been a member of the teaching staff at Osborne Primary School since 1985 and have been the Associate Principal for the past 4 years. I have enjoyed being part of this small school community where staff and students know one another, care for and help each other. Over the years I have always taken on extra responsibilities whenever the need has arisen. I have seen many changes over the years and look forward to making a contribution in the next phase of our progress as an Independent Public School.

Sarah Aitken – Parent

My husband and I chose Osborne Primary School for our children because of the community feeling and welcoming atmosphere.  Both our children love their school. I feel that an effective school has engaged parents who are willing to participate in school life.  I look forward to continue supporting the school through my role as a parent on the school board.

Tom Sharpe-Parent
With our daughter attending Osborne Primary and soon our Son too, I am both delighted and excited to be a part of the road mapping of the schools future endeavours. From the always supportive and skilled staff to the emphasis on the importance of cultural inclusion, Osborne Primary is a great place for our next generation to grow and learn.

David Seaton-Parent
My wife Jeni and I live in the community and send both our boys to OPS and they absolutely love it! We’re really happy how they have settled into the school and the friends they have made. The vibrancy around culture and cultural awareness is something that I respect about the school given the truly global representation of backgrounds in the school. I’m always impressed with what they’ve been learning and how much they enjoy it when I chat to them in the evenings when I get home from work. Originally from Northern Ireland and having had a great educational background, I’m pleased to be able to share my experiences with the school and contribute to making OPS the best it can be.

Julia Boardman  – Staff

I have enjoyed teaching at Osborne Primary School since 2004, after relocating to Perth from NSW. I have taught in many different roles across the school including classroom, support and relief teacher and more recently specialist teacher. This role allows me to work with and develop relationships with students across the whole school. I now look forward to my role on the school board to support and make a positive contribution to the future of our school.

 

Kristin Pittard  – Staff

I’ve been at Osborne Primary School since 2014. In this time, I have had a variety of teaching roles and have undertaken numerous projects in the areas of Art and Indigenous education. I currently teach Year 2 and lead the school’s literacy portfolio. I love being a part of a small multicultural community where we celebrate diversity and are afforded the opportunity to foster strong relationships with all of our students and their families. I take pride in our school and look forward to supporting the board and contributing to the future of Osborne PS

Hailey Robinson  – P & C Representative 

 
My husband and I chose Osborne Primary School for our daughters Gypsy and Indigo because of the small intimate sizes of the classrooms and also for the multicultural aspect due to us being from New Zealand. I feel very blessed to be able to give back to the school by volunteering on the P&C committee to fundraise much needed money to help the school with projects and help parents pay for trips by subsiding the cost. We are very happy as a family with OPS and feel we have made the best choice in choosing OPS as the school for our two girls.
