School Board Members

Vanessa Wicks, School Board Chair

I have been a member of the Golden Bay Primary School Board since its inception in 2015. I joined the board as my husband and I have lived in Golden Bay for nine years and we have 3 children who either currently attend GBPS, or will in the near future. enjoy representing the parent community to set the strategic direction of the school.

I have a Bachelor of Human Resource Management and have spent much of my career employed in the Oil and Gas and Mining industries. In my work I manage a $40 million operational budget, I develop business plans and I implement continuous improvement plans. I bring this experience to being a member of the school board.

In my younger days, I served 6 years in the Royal Australian Navy working as an Avionics Technician on Seahawk Helicopters. I have travelled extensively around Australia, and overseas and I have lived in many different locations.. I love seeing the world and I enjoy running long distance.
