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.
Meena Bansal – Education Assistant/Parent
My son Arnav has been in Osborne Primary School since Kindy and I have been working here as an Education Assisstant since 7 years now. We both have loved our journey in the school so far and I am very pleased to have joined the School Board this year. I look forward to strengthen communication and partnership between Osborne Primary and the current as well as future local community along with other Board members.
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.
I am a musician and Australian Army officer currently serving as the Music Director of the Australian Army Band Perth. As a defence family, we move around the country frequently and it is always great to get actively involved in the community in each location we are lucky enough to call home. My daughter loves coming to school every day and I hope to be able to bring that same enthusiasm to my time on the School Board.
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.
