FIONA COCKS:  Parent Representative /  Board Chair

I have been associated with Nedlands Primary School since 2009. I currently have two boys at the school, in years 5 and 2.  My oldest boy graduated from Nedlands Primary last year. 

I have been very active in the school community over this time, regularly volunteering to assist the P&C with the organisation of various social and fundraising events and acting as a class co-ordinator each year.  I have a keen interest in Nedlands Primary upholding its strong academic, music and sporting reputation, but more importantly in ensuring that the school provides a friendly, nurturing environment for the students, where they are encouraged to respect, support and be positive with each other.

Professionally, I have over 20 years' experience in the finance and investment banking industry, predominantly at Macquarie Bank in Perth and Sydney and now as a Director at advisory firm, Deloitte, advising clients on corporate finance, commercial and project structuring matters.




CALEB JONES - Parent Representative

I am a father of two boys, the oldest who is in yr1 at Nedlands PS.

In my professional life I am an Associate Principal, School of Special Educational Needs: Medical and Mental Health for the Department of Education and I have 19 years of teaching and leadership experience across WA and the UK.

Aside from my dedication to helping all young people succeed regardless of health needs or circumstances, I believe in the importance of fathers/father figures in young people's lives and have started involvement with Nedlads in the last 12 months.

I also love the Arts, music, sport, travel and history and values these experiences in children's growth and development.

I am  keen to support the students and community of Nedlands PS through the planning and decision making of the School Board.

Classroom Teacher - year 4
Level 3 Teacher

I'm both a primary and secondary qualified teacher and I've loved teaching at Nedlands Primary School for over 20 years. 
Previously, I'd taught in metropolitan high schools, then a remote indigenous community in the desert, a remote wheatbelt town (I was married to a Primary Principal in a past life) and also lived in Collie and Carnarvon.
I gained my Level 3 Classroom Teacher status in 2006 and led the Maths Committee, introducing First Steps Maths prior to the Australian Curriculum v1, when we still had a State Maths Syllabus (which I'd helped to write).
I ran the Oracy Australia programme for many years at Nedlands, which must have involved over 1,000 children, independently presenting an oral programme to assessors and their peers.
I've also been involved with moderation of Writing  for the Department of Education, and helped review writing exemplars.
I completed my Masters in Education in 2016 at The UWA and have presented my research at state and national forums.
I have two adult daughters. I grew up in a sailing family and have sailed most of my life, winning many club and state titles.
I've served on Nedlands Primary School Council in the past, along with several terms on the Council at Churchlands SHS and several years as secretary of the P&C there.
I look forward to working with you all,
