Joe Vettoor- Board Chair and Parent
I am delighted to have our twins currently attending Osborne Primary, and I am eagerly anticipating our daughter joining them soon. As a parent who is passionate about education, I am excited to become involved in the school community. I strongly believe in the school’s mission of creating a community that nurtures children to strive to achieve their personal best. As the newly appointed chairperson of the school board, I look forward to supporting and contributing to Osborne Primary’s continued success.
Sarah Aitken – Secretary and 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.
Kylie Jones- Principal
As Principal, I bring to the board a wide range of experiences having worked in a number of school environments. Being part of a school board and working with the community to improve student outcomes is an important role and I value to the input that all members make. I look forward to working alongside the Board and we move into our next cycle of leadership.
Kristin Pittard – Deputy Principal
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
Julia Boardman – Staff Representative
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.
Hailey Robinson – Parent Representative
Hi, I am Hayley and my two daughters attend Osborne Primary School in years 4 and 1. We are so glad we chose Osborne Primary as we love the smaller size, the care and attention the children get from all the teachers, and the support we get as parents from the school. I am so grateful for the opportunity to represent the school parents and community on the board and I look forward to continuing supporting the school in any way I can.
Melanie Atkinson – Parent Representative
As a local community member for a number of years, I have been excited to join the OPS community and school board now that my oldest daughter Imogen has joined the school. I am passionate about setting our next generation up for success both for personal resilience and globally sustainable development. Osborne Primary is an absolute hidden gem, with such caring and friendly staff and students and I look forward to contributing to the school’s ongoing success.
Peggy Hutchinson- Community Representative
My neighbour and I volunteer in the garden in front of the Pre-Primary because we love nature and wanted to help create something beautiful.I have always liked the following quote by John F. Kennedy: “Children are the living messages we send to a future we will not see”. I look forward to working with people committed to giving each child the care and skills needed for that future.
