Waroona District High School Peel South

School address: Millar Street Waroona WA 6215

Your councillor is Vivienne Cantem

My name is Vivienne Cantem, I am the WACSSO State Councillor for Peel South and a member of Riverside Primary Schools P&C Association. I have two sons, who both attend Halls Head College Education support Centre. I am also a parent representative on the School Board.

My volunteer journey began in 1998 when my eldest daughter began primary school in the Catholic Education system, where I joined the Parents & Friends Association. My active roles were Secretary for seven years and Fundraising convener for two years. I also gained my Canteen Managers qualification through WASCA and was employed by the school in 2003. I have always been pro-active in supporting my children’s schools, volunteering wherever possible and building positive relationships with staff and other parents.

My volunteer work also extends to outside the school sector as I enjoy giving my time to our community. I worked in hospitality on the Hotham Valley Restaurant Train in Dwellingup from 2011 till 2016. Presently I work in the kiosk at Peel Health Campus regularly, and I am currently nominating for the Kiosk Managers position. I also enjoy my time with fundraising at Riverside Primary Schools.

My introduction to WACSSO began four years ago when I attended my first P&C meeting at Riverside and nominated for the President’s role, being the first Education Support Centre parent to be involved in the P&C as well as holding an office bearer position. I was completely surprised by how much support and guidance WACSSO provide to so many P&C Associations and was confused why ours had not thought to accept any. I made it our goal to build a committed and solid relationship between our committee and WACSSO and its something I’m very proud of today. I train our new members every year through hosting sessions after our AGM.

My aim as State Councillor is to share all the experience and knowledge that I have gained over the years with all my affiliates in my electorate. To help you achieve your goals as a P&C Association and strengthen your relationship with WACSSO. It is the motivation behind my nomination.

As the WACSSO State Councillor, it is my role to represent the opinions of the affiliates within the Peel South electorate. I will be in regular contact to ask your opinion on matters being dealt with by WACSSO State Council.

If I am invited, I would be 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 any P&C matters.
