My wife (Mary-Anne) and I are the proud parents of two daughters. Our eldest (Caitlyn) is in year 3 and our youngest (Charlotte) is in 4 year old kindy. I commenced my professional career just over 18 years ago at Western Power after graduating from UWA with a Bachelor of Engineering. My journey started on the graduate program, before moving into the engineering and design (technical) space and then into various leadership roles of engineering and project delivery teams. The industry I work in is changing at a fast pace (for the better) and it relies on people with a good grounding in STEM and a passion for sustainability. As a new elected member of the board, I hope I can play a small part in supporting the school to instil these values in our children and achieve other positive outcomes for the school and its associated community.
Board Member: Adam Zen
As a proud father of two children recently starting their Notre Dame CPS journey, I hope to be able to support the school, students, staff and broader community. I graduated from UWA with a Bachelor of Science (Exercise and Health) and a Graduate Diploma in Education. With 12 years of experience in public education I am now in management at a large public high school. I believe I will be able to provide a unique insight into strategic decisions and plans made to improve student outcomes and learning experiences. In our first year associated with the NDCPS community my family have been so impressed with the sense of community and values that the students, staff and parents represent and I look forward to continuing to add value to the school’s already fantastic reputation.
Board Member: Edward Carberry
I have worked for a Western Australian, family-owned business in a management role since its inception in 2007. I played an integral part in growing the company from an initial 3 employees to our current team of 20 and continue to be a committed and dedicated member of the senior management team. I am directly responsible for the Service department, including P+L responsibility, HR and OHS. To further complement my strategic, leadership, and financial acumen, I completed an MBA at the University of Western Australia in 2017.
My wife, Michelle and I have one child (Henry, Year 1) currently at Notre Dame, and another due to enrol in 2022. Michelle is actively involved with the P & F, and together we take a keen interest in how our school is performing now and the strategic direction it takes in the future, hence my eagerness and gratitude to be accepted to the Board.
I strongly believe that the skills I have honed through my MBA and work experience coupled with my passion for our children’s education, will make me a valuable addition to the Notre Dame School Board.
