School Board - Membership
The Board currently comprises ten members, including the school principal, six school community representatives, two staff members and an elected community member.
School community members are appointed for a period of two years and bring to the Board a variety of skills that provide additional expertise and input to the school’s operations.
I am a mother of two gorgeous kids – a daughter in High School and a son in Year 3. My husband and I have lived in Scarborough for the past 15 years and are both heavily involved in Surf Life Saving. Our family are all members at Scarborough Surf Life Saving Club, with husband Chris the Board Captain and head coach, while I am the Education Director at the club. We are both patrol captains, trainers, assessors, officials, competitors and coaches, and I sit on two volunteer committees for SLSWA. I also won the National Trainer of the Year award for SLSA for 2015.
Professionally my background is in operational management, strategic development and project management, with a strong emphasis on HR. My biggest passion however, is my children, and ensuring their safe and well-rounded upbringing. Wembley Downs Primary School has a lovely community feel to it and I look forward to sharing my energy and experience with my fellow Board members to ensure successful outcomes for our children and our community.
My name is Sam Mackintosh, my wife and I have two kids in the school, Harry and Rose.
I am a big fan of kitesurfing, sailing, camping, basically anything that involves being outdoors. I work in the engineering and project management field based in Perth.
I am happy to be involved in the school and can hopefully make a contribution that supports and improves what is a great place for our kids to learn and grow.
I have been part of the Wembley Downs Primary community for the last 3 years. My two sons are passionate in their love for their school and this has well and truly rubbed off on me.
I enjoy the sense of community that we have at our school and value the benefits of strong collaboration between the school leadership team, the board and parents.
I am a longterm GP in Perth’s northern suburbs and am extremely passionate about the importance of building a strong foundation for mental health in our children. This includes them knowing they have a sense of belonging to a community beyond their own families, believing they can bounce back from life’s challenges and that that they are recognized for their individual strengths but are not being afraid to put their hand up for support when they need it.
I love nothing more than being out with my family with beach or trees around me. Winning or losing, I also enjoy a Dockers’ game. I also look forward to afternoon plays with school families and watching the kids having time to engage in good old fashioned play with the other people in our “village”.
My family and I love living in Wembley Downs and have two children, Zac and Georgia, attending the school.
I currently work as a Finance Broker and have sales experience across the Telecommunications, Sports and Education sectors. I enjoy being outdoors with my family, walking, running, surfing, bike riding, and of course, kicking the footy!
I am keen to help initiate and advocate for programs that will help the students at WDPS develop and grow into confident young adults that participate in and contribute to our community and beyond.
