Board Chair (Parent Rep) :
Nim Dissanayake

I am honored to be given the role of Chair of SHPS Board. I have a daughter and a son attending the school. I love the welcoming atmosphere and the commitment to promoting mindfulness based activities in supporting our children to become individuals who can make positive contributions. I am passionate about creating a school community where Teachers, Students and Parents work as one big family and look forward  to working with fellow Board members with a view to achieving the goals set out in our Business Plan.


Lisa Fletcher

I have been Principal at Secret Harbour PS for over 10 years and during this time I have facilitated the School Council to transition to a School Board as the school successfully became an Independent Public School.
Our Board members bring their experiences and expertise to represent the school community on setting the strategic direction of our school.  I value their considered input as we work together to develop and deliver a School Business Plan and reflect on the achievement of targets.  We all share the same goal of improving our great school and ‘Leading the Way’.
