Simone Bush (Parent Representative)
“A resident of Vasse since 2016 and a parent at the school since 2018. I am passionate about the development of our youth and ensuring access to education and support services for all within the community.
Professionally, I have had over 20 years experience in administrative roles specialising in Human Resources and Quality Management. Having held senior roles within the Mining and Community Services sector, I currently serve as an Executive for a Community Service Organisation (Not-for-profit) based in Bunbury.”
Amy Gornall (Parent Representative)
Ulrika Larsson (Parent Representative)
Erin Smith (Parent Representative)
“I have lived in Busselton for most of my life, attended primary and secondary school here and have certainly seen some changes in that time, especially to the Vasse area which I have called home for the last 13 years. I married a local farmer after completing my university degree in Medicine and have worked in various roles at Bunbury and Busselton Hospitals, then General Practice thereafter.
Our 2 sons, aged 9 and 5, attend Vasse Primary School, as did their father and grandfather, and we are very proud of our school. It still feels like the “small” local school from all those years ago with a great sense of community and belonging. I have an interest in mental health and feel that belonging to such a great community is important for all of us. I hope to bring a unique point of view to the school board as a newly appointed parent representative that represents our current climate.“
