Mount Lawley Primary School Board

School Board

The School Board plays an important role in contributing to good school governance so that school resources are used efficiently and community expectations and the school’s priorities reflect the needs of students. The functions of the School Board are covered by legislation and include both approval and advisory roles. Some of the matters the Board makes decisions on include fees and charges, book lists, sponsorship and dress codes. The Board makes these decisions with the Principal who ensures the decisions adhere to legislative and policy requirements. 

The School Board, comprising of the Principal and elected staff, parent and community representatives, meets twice each term, in Weeks 4 and 8. Interested members of the school community are welcome to attend Board meetings as observers.

Board email address:



At the end of last year, one of our parent representatives resigned from her position before the end of her term. This means that we are running an election process for a casual vacancy for 12 months, ending on 31 December 2020. Nominations were called for the two weeks up to and including Friday 231 February and online voting will be open from Monday 24 February to Friday 28 February at 4:00pm WST. Parents and carers who are registered with the school are eligible to vote. Provided  a valid email address has been registered,  parents and carers will receive an email on Monday 24 February with a link to the survey and a unique code for access.

To assist you in making a decision, a brief bio from the two nominees has been provided below.

Breanna Catania

I am a new kindergarten mum. I also have a toddler. Our family has grown up in this area for over 40 years. I am eager to get involved in the school community by assisting the Board. I have a corporate background and have been a member of multiple committees. I’m approachable and a team player. I will always put my hand up to help in any way possible and would love to give back to the school this way.

Sian Zador

Hi, I am Sian Zador, Mum to two amazing girls who are in Year 1 and Kindy at Mt Lawley PS. I spend my time juggling parenthood, my career as an Accountant and squeezing in some Pilates! I enjoy giving back to our community through my volunteer work which has included childhood allergy research, helping disadvantaged women enter the workforce to gain financial independence, as well as serving for last 3 years on the board for Marjorie Mann Daycare in Mt Lawley. I would like the opportunity to support our school in providing quality education.
