Lucy Hopkins (Parent Representative)
Our family joined the Lake Monger Primary School community in 2017. I believe it is important that every child has access to opportunities to fulfil their potential, both academically and socially. My background in law and advocacy has provided me with skills that can assist the Board in its governance role of LMPS. I am grateful for the opportunity to help ensure all LMPS students receive a rounded, enjoyable and challenging education.
Diane Tomlinson (Principal)
I have been the Principal of Lake Monger Primary School since October 2015. I am very committed to continuing the ‘view to excellence’ at Lake Monger Primary School. I strongly believe in quality effective teaching and learning being key to the development of the whole child. I thoroughly enjoy working with the P&C and School Board Representatives.
Alexia Caraes (Parent Representative)
Born and raised in France, I went to Canada to study and after five years (…and five long winters) my partner and I decided to come to Australia in 2007 and live in summertime! I am currently working in aged care with a background in commerce, journalism and public relations. I have been a member of the Lake Monger Primary School community since 2015 when my son David started kindergarten. Since then my other son Jeremy has joined this incredible little school.
Pendray Harrison (Staff Representative)
“I consider myself extremely lucky to be an educator in the multi-cultural environment of Lake Monger Primary School. After completing my teaching degree, I had the opportunity to teach in the Middle East, England and a Remote Community School in Western Australia before starting to teach full time at Lake Monger Primary School in 2017. My goal is to give the students I teach both in the classroom or in after school clubs, the essential tools and skills they need to be successful active citizens of the world. I am honoured to be a member of the Lake Monger Primary School Board.”
Hagop Boyadjian (Community Representative)
I am an Associate Principal at Churchlands SHS. I taught in both the British and US education sectors prior to commencing teaching in Australia. In Australia I worked at Eastern Goldfields SHS, Applecross SHS and Como Secondary College as a Mathematics teacher and Head of Learning Area. In 2015 I transferred to Churchlands SHS. I look forward to working with the board and support the school in its journey.
Kate Rennie (Deputy Principal)
I was very excited to join the Lake Monger Primary School community at the beginning of 2020 as the Deputy Principal. I am passionate about promoting educational opportunities for all students to achieve their maximum potential and want our students to love coming to school every day. The Lake Monger School community is a warm and welcoming environment for staff, students and visitors and I feel privileged to be able to contribute to this community through the School Board.
We moved here from New Zealand in 2015. I was amazed at how beautiful Western Australia is, and the fantastic opportunities here. My son has previously attended Lake Monger for his Primary school years, and I currently have my daughter there now. They both have had wonderful experiences. It’s most important to me to be involved in different aspects of my children’s school and sporting lives. I’m excited to be a part of the board, and to communicate with parents to support the children at our School.
