Ballajura Community College Swan West

School address: Illawarra Crescent South Ballajura WA 6066

Your councillor is Melissa Gillespie

My name is Melissa Gillespie and I have the privilege to serve as the State Councillor for the Swan West electorate.  I have one daughter who attends Ballajura Primary School.  I have been a member of the Ballajura Primary School P & C since 2015, serving as a member of the Executive Committee since 2016.  I have loved my time working with the P&C and the local community.

Growing up, my parents were heavily involved with the Parents and Teachers’ Association (PTA) at my school – at one time or another, both my parents were presidents of our school’s PTA and from there became involved at the state level for many years, so you could safely say that I caught the volunteer bug early in life! 

I am a passionate advocate for public schooling and believe that there is nothing more important than for parents, teachers and other staff at the schools, and members of the wider community to work together to provide for the future of our children.  One key way to achieve this is to strive for improvements within the public education system, and the collaborative partnership between WACSSO and the Education Department is a necessary part of making those improvements happen. 

As a WACSSO State Councillor, my role is to represent the opinions and share the concerns of the affiliates within my electorate.  I am your local voice at the state level and will be in regular contact to ask your opinion on matters being dealt with by WACSSO State Council.   

If invited, I would be more than happy to attend one of your P&C meetings to introduce myself and explain the role of WACSSO, or answer any questions you may have regarding matters related to the P&C.
