Amanda Schiaffini

School Board Secretary

Parent Representative

 

I have been a parent at Anne Hamersley since it's first year in 2016. As a foundation parent, I was able to get to know the staff well which I believe is an integral part of creating the welcoming community feel of Anne Hamersley. Being on the board provides an opportunity to strengthen the partnership between parents and the school. I have learned to understand school policies and decisions from a different perspective which is useful to pass on to parents. I strongly believe that parents and school staff should work together with open communication to ensure that our children receive the best all rounded education experience possible.

As my 3 daughters moved through Anne Hamersley, I have received a great deal of support from the school and all of the wonderful staff. I am passionate about education having trained as an early childhood teacher and, of course, as a parent. Being a board member gives me the opportunity to lend my perspective to shaping the future of the school.

My family & I joined Anne Hamersley in 2018 and we have been thrilled with the education & community that we have found here. As a parent, I have had the pleasure of watching my two daughters graduate in 2018 & 2021, and my son is currently in year 5.

I have seen firsthand the dedication and commitment of the teachers and staff at AHPS, & I am grateful for the role they have played in helping my children reach their full potential.

During this time, I have worked in many school settings, spending seven years as a Deputy Principal and the last seven years as Principal (the last three at Anne Hamersley Primary School).

A child’s time at school should be fun, memorable, and enjoyable. I take great pride and enjoyment in making a difference to each child’s educational journey and providing these exciting experiences.

Brooke Nish 

Staff Representative 

 

I am a dedicated Year 6 Teacher and Mathematics Curriculum Leader at Anne Hamersley Primary School. I have nine years of experience teaching at two incredible metropolitan schools. Over the last few years, I have also led mathematics and worked as Acting Deputy Principal at our wonderful school. 

 

My 'why' is to make a positive and lifelong impact on the lives of all children by being able to support them to be the best possible version of themselves, socially, emotionally and academically. It is to provide an environment where all children feel safe, valued and inspired. My 'why' is to help children reach certain milestones within their learning and to be able to witness the joy they express when they learn something new or achieve their goals. I live for those lightbulb moments. 

 

I teach Year 6 because I get the privilege of preparing another cohort of children for the next chapter of their lives. There is something very special about seeing my children embark on their final chapter.

 

Whether I am teaching our future leaders or in the role of Deputy Principal, my purpose is to develop strong, supportive relationships with all staff, students and parents/caregivers. 

 

Being on the School Board provides an opportunity for me to understand the parent perspective. I thoroughly enjoy working alongside parents and staff to determine the future direction of AHPS.

I love working with such an exceptional team of people.

Being a staff representative on the School Board, provides me with the opportunity to work alongside parents, which allows me to see the school from their perspective.
