Michelle Jenkins

Role

Deputy Chairperson

General Information

My name is Michelle Jenkins and I have 3 wonderful children with my husband Scott and all three have gone to Cambridge Primary, with the eldest now in Year 7, having graduated from Cambridge Primary in 2015. Originally I studied Engineering and these days I lead large, complex projects for more than 10 years. Governance plays a significant role with these large projects and over the last few years I have been able to Chair the Cambridge Primary ‘Cool Pool for My School’ Committee. It was great to be able to work with like-minded parents that saw us formally open the pool during the recent Sesquicentennial events last February. It has been satisfying to see the huge benefit the pool has made to students, staff and the community.

I would like to apply my skills and experience to help develop a collective vision for learning for both our staff and students. As well as providing experience with property, finance and staff leadership, I feel that I bring common sense and a desire to improve educational outcomes for our children.
