FIONA COCKS:  Parent Representative

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.
