2023 School Advisory Council Members
Angelo Siciliano (Chair)
I have been a part of advisory council for 4 years I am a father of four with all of my children attending St. Joseph's, currently in Grades 5, 2, 1 and Foundation. I myself also attended St. Joseph’s. The reason I joined is because I have a vested interest in the school as my children attend and I wanted to be a part of the growth of St. Joseph’s.
Olivia Van Every (Vice Chair)
I have 2 daughters who attend St. Josephs, Sage attends St. Joseph's and is in Grade 5. Payton is in Year 7. I attended St. Josephs myself for all of my primary school years and it's lovely to see our children there now. I really enjoy being an active participant in our children's learning which is why I joined the advisory council and I have been a member now for 3 years.
My 2 children Jacoba grade 4 and William grade 2 attend St Joseph's. I have lived in Cobram for 22 years, and am originally from Geelong. I was approached to join the advisory council by another father who is a member. My main purpose is to try to assist in a broader range of thinking to assist in an already organised council.
I have four children, of which three attend St. Josephs & a four year old. Lukas, Dakota, Isla and Peyton.I am a dairy farmer & alongside my husband Stewart we run our own dairy business as well as agricultural contracting. I’m a very passionate person and I love what I do.I also love being involved with what my 'kidlets' are up to and have loved being involved in the advisory council. It’s definitely opened my eyes in a good way to see the involvement and collaboration of what it takes to run our fantastic school.
I live on small acerage local to Cobram, with my husband and 2 girls. I am a Primary Teacher, currently teaching Visual Arts. I love camping and exploring. I joined the Advisory Council as I am a big believer in supporting the school community to ensure they have the tools needed to provide our children with amazing learning opportunities.
My family moved to the area from northern NSW 2 years ago. We have 3 children at St. Joseph's. The reason I joined the School Advisory Council is that I wanted to help with the school moving forward into the future. I also like to give back to the school when I can and I felt this was a good way to do this.
