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.

Dean Harris
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.

Rebecca Robertson
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.

Gemma Tilley
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.

Mary-Kate McCormick
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.
