My name is Jane Campbell and I have one child remaining at GSC (in Year 10). I have served on School Council for four years and have been involved with many positive outcomes for our school. I have an Arts background and am passionate about quality public education. I have lived in Gisborne for 25 years and I have been active in the community in many ways over that time, including with Gisborne Singers and 1st Gisborne Scouts. I am excited about the College’s future prospects..
My name is Nadine Pachi I have one child Robert in Y10 at Gisborne Secondary and another 2 children attending primary school, Christopher Y5 and Stephanie Y3.
Born in New Zealand, I moved to Australia where I joined ANZ where I spent the next 23 years before moving to NAB. I work full time as a Technology Delivery Manager at NAB where I manage a team of developers. My key driver is providing guidance and support for people to succeed in their careers and helping find the roles that will inspire and motivate people to give their best. I also run a coaching circle with our Women in Technology program.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, karate, swimming and other sporting and academic activities. To keep up with my children I keep fit by attending the gym and completing obstacle courses.
School Council will give me an opportunity to be more involved in the community, to actively participate in my children’s school activities and to give a representative voice to Gisborne Secondary. I feel I have the skills and knowledge to confidently undertake an elected position on the school council and would relish the opportunity to make a difference.
My name is Sam and I am the proud and excited first time parent of a secondary school student. I have decided to nominate for a Parent Position on School Council out of an interest to learn more about Gisborne Secondary College, contribute to the school’s strategic direction and be advocate for the school in the broader community.
I have a background in office administration and am a natural organiser of things (and people … just ask my family!) Outside of work, volunteering is my passion and for many years, I’ve been active in community planning, local Landcare groups & my children’s sporting clubs.
I bring an open mind, a sense of humour and a willingness to work with the school, fellow councillors and the community to ensure the continual improvement of the education experience for all Gisborne Secondary College students.
Hello, my name is Kerry, and I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself.
Born and raised in country Victoria, I currently reside in Romsey. After completing my VCE, I moved to the city in 1992 to begin a career as a Chef which spanned over 20 years. During this time, I attained a wealth of practical and valuable leadership skills and life lessons, many of which I still use to this day. Commercial kitchen’s are not family friendly environments however, so for this Mother of 3, it wasn’t long before I decided it was time to invest in, and reinvent myself. Today I own a small but successful Photography business allowing me to maintain an active role in my children’s education.
Spending the last 15 years supporting their schooling, including school camps, excursions, early literacy aide, photographing school events and serving as Parent Club President for 5 years. I firmly believe that through support, a positive attitude to study and hard work, our children will succeed at their goals and improve their career opportunities.
I would love to continue investing my time towards supporting GSC via assisting on School Council.
