What you do:
I am a Magistrate of the South Australian Magistrates Court.
Your Connection with the College:
We are parents of four children, one is an Old Scholar and the other three are attending the Senior School. My husband, Damian, is an Old Scholar along with his five brothers.
Why are you here:
I have seen the spirit of social justice and community which the school emphasises as part of the education of its students. The Foundation is in my view integral to reflect that spirit in a corporeal way through the development of projects which aim to benefit those within the Saint Ignatius community and the more general community who may not otherwise have access to certain opportunities which an Ignatian education can provide.
The provision of bursary subsidies to current and prospective students focussed on financial support for families who would otherwise not have the opportunity to enrol their children at the school, and of course families presently at the school who may require assistance, noting of course the support provided by the school already.
I am particularly interested in developing a focus of support for minorities most in need, including indigenous families, refugees and the like.
In continued cooperation with College Council and administration I hope that these projects may flourish in coming years, which can only benefit the entire Ignatian community.
