School Board

Each Independent Public School has a school board. Tambrey Primary School, in collaboration with the board, has established a vision for our school that reflects the aspirations and needs of the community. The board has an important influence on the direction of the school, with members bringing ideas and lending their expertise to strategic (big picture) planning and community partnerships.

The School Board is comprised of parent representatives, the Principal and representatives from the school’s teaching staff and community representatives. The School Board actively engages with our local school community and advise our Principal on strategic matters, to nurture and inspire lifelong learning and achieve high level of achievement for all Tambrey Primary School students.

The School Board plays a leading role in decisions which affect the school community. Matters relating to school planning, budget, and policy are discussed and ratified. Parent and staff Board members are elected by those whom they represent.

School Board Chair - Mr Aaron Bruce

My name is Aaron Bruce and I am the Chair of the Tambrey Primary School Board. I have lived in the Pilbara my entire life and have completed both primary and secondary education in DampierAaron-Bruce and Karratha. I work for Woodside Energy as the Maintenance Manager of the Karratha Gas Plant. You may see me around the town involved in the many sports that the Pilbara kids play throughout the year.

I have 3 children that have attended Tambrey since Kindy and they are now in Yr4 (Will), Yr6 (Macy) and Yr8 (Zach). As my kids started school, I could see that dedicated staff working together with passionate parents and community members, could enable the school and students to thrive and reach their potential. I nominated for the School Board in 2017 to be a part of this team. 

The School Board can have a very positive impact on the students, staff and entire school community. A role on the School Board is a formal commitment of 4hrs per term, plus other opportunities to support and promote the school at assemblies, events and general school activities.

It is a genuine privilege to be on the Tambrey Primary School Board and I look forward to seeing you around the school.
