Foundation Board Chair
What you do?
I have had the privilege of working in the education sector for many years. I work at Catholic Education South Australia (CESA) assisting the Deputy Director in the area of School Quality and Performance.
What is your Connection with the College?
Upon moving from Sydney to Adelaide, the first Mass I went to was at Saint Ignatius’ Parish, Norwood. It quickly became clear to me how special the Saint Ignatius community was. Andrew, my husband, is an Old Scholar along with his two brothers. Our son is also an Old Scholar and our daughter is at the Senior School. We were also privileged to be a host family to Old Scholar, Yi-Ling (Agnes) Dong for nine years. A relationship which still thrives today.
Why did you join the Board?
I have witnessed this community in action for many years and it never ceases to amaze me just how fortunate I am to be a part of it. Whilst the payment of school fees educate our children, the Foundation Board has the opportunity to lead the community to build. Whether it is the building of stronger relationships, friendships or structures – they all enhance the community to ensure it becomes the best it can be. It is particularly important for the Foundation to maintain and develop the Saint Ignatius’ College community in order to continue to provide young people with a high quality education of both their minds and hearts.
