School Board Members 


Peter Meston - Principal 

The Principal of the school maintains an ex-officio role on the School Board and I am fortunate to have filled this position since 2010. Prior to accepting the position at Glengarry PS, I was Principal at a number of metropolitan primary schools, notably Cloverdale PS, Churchlands PS and Carlisle PS. These positions were preceded by periods of time in country location as an educational leader, including Mingenew, Esperance, Norseman and Babakin.

During this time, my wife and I have raised two children, with my son maintaining a desire to continue the family tradition of teaching.

My role on the School Board is to keep the Board fully informed of all school operations including supporting the analysis of data and the resulting strategic planning to address areas of need. Ultimately, this intent aligns implicitly to the school’s vision of ensuring we maximise the potential of all students.


Stewart Lillico - Staff Representative 

I have been teaching at Glengarry Primary School since 2017 and feel privileged to be a member of our School Board. 

I believe in the best educational opportunities for all students. I am proud to work in an environment where we can nurture each student on their path to eventually becoming productive and independent lifelong learners who are beacons of the values that we taught them at Glengarry.


During my time on the School Board, I hope to contribute insights that lead to positive growth for our students, and exciting new directions for our school community. 


Megan Richards - Staff Representative

After starting my teaching career out in the Goldfields, I landed a permanent position at Glengarry Primary School in 2013. I have taught years 3 – 7 over the course of my career, predominately in the upper years. I have a passion for STEM, Mathematics and Visual Arts and enjoy finding ways to link these across the curriculum.

I am also very passionate about Sustainability and the powerful role, we as educators, play in this space. I hope to equip students with the knowledge, skills and values necessary for taking action and contributing to more sustainable patterns in their personal lives and within their community now and for the future.

On the days I am not working at Glengarry, I am fulfilling my motherly duties at home with my two young children. During my time on the school board, I hope to bring insight from my teaching role that drives positive action as we strive for excellence as a school and community. 


Urszula Helac - Parent Representative 


My name is Urszula Helac and I have been fortunate enough to join the school board this year. I have three children currently attending Glengarry Primary School and feel very grateful to be given the opportunity to be a parent representative.

Along side of being a  parent, I run my own business as a Personal Mortgage Advisor where I strive to help people reach their financial goals to allow them to succeed both personally and professionally.

My focus is to bring families, community, and the school together to help enhance the emotional and academic well being of our children.


Jacinta Stephens - Staff Representative 


I have been teaching at Glengarry Primary School for over 10 years now and am lucky to hold a permanent position here. 

I have taught all year levels from K - 7 and am currently teaching year 5. I love to have fun with my students and enjoy creating a positive classroom environment where students know they're safe, cared for and can learn to the best of their abilities.

Glengarry is a supportive school with a beautiful environment.  As well as a teacher I am a mother to 3 girls and am lucky enough to have them attending Glengarry.

Whilst holding a position on the board I hope to add some insight from the classroom and keep Glengarry excelling in education. 



 Gail Kimpton – Community Member

I have been part of the Glengarry Community for many years. My daughter was a student here. Our long connection has continued with my three granddaughters, now attending this dynamic primary school.

I am a retired Educator but maintain an active interest in this school as a volunteer in the Reading/ English Learning Area, supporting students with their learning journey.  

Throughout my career I have been passionate about education. With vast experience in the Primary School, as Principal, Deputy Principal and Classroom Teacher. I have taught all year levels from Year One to Seven. As a School Leader I have been a positive influence on whole school communities. I am convinced that the teaching profession has a most important task to do, as we influence hearts and minds of generations to come.

I am currently the Chairperson/Secretary of the One Big Voice Festival. Glengarry Primary School is an active and enthusiastic participant in our programme. I love music. It has been said by many that ‘Music is food for the soul’. I believe that the contribution that it makes to the atmosphere, tone, performance and life of a school and its community is immeasurable.

I know that I am well placed, as a Community member, to bring my positive experiences and perspectives, to assist at a Board Level however I can. I have relished the opportunity to be a part of the Glengarry Primary School Board in 2023.


Matt Morgan 


My name is Matt Morgan and I joined the school board in 2022. I have three children attending Glengarry PS, and consider my family very fortunate to be a part of such a warm and kind community.

In my professional life I work in technology as a Product Manager, leading a development team for a Brisbane based eLearning startup. I'm passionate about solving problems with technology, and about creating high functioning and inclusive teams. 

Glengarry PS is a pillar of our community, and a source of pride. I look forward to promoting deeper collaboration between the community and the school as we work towards our vision for the future. 


Caroline Goldie

I joined the Glengarry School Board in 2022 and am passionate about helping Glengarry equip our children with the emotional skills, self-management techniques and knowledge they will need for the future, along with a crucial love of learning and reading. My two children have both benefitted enormously from the opportunities, community spirit and dedicated teaching staff at Glengarry.

I believe positive outcomes are better enabled by strong ties between the school management and parents and carers and, as a researcher by profession, I aim to ensure that their voices play a key role in school decisions and help the school continue to evolve and meet the challenges to come.

 Laren Collen

I feel privileged to be a representative of the parents on the Glengarry Primary School Board from 2023. As the father of 2 students who attend the school, and a husband to a passionate teacher I value the importance of the high-quality education Glengarry PS provides to our community.


As a regional manager for a multinational technology company in my professional capacity, I believe in furthering innovation and modernization in education, while also maintaining the traditional values that make our community truly special. I am eager to work with all stakeholders to create an environment that fosters academic excellence, creativity, and lifelong learning.

Hannah James


 My name is Hannah James and I have been fortunate enough to join the School Board this year. I have one child in Year 2 attending Glengarry Primary School and feel very grateful to be given the opportunity to be a parent representative.

As well as being a parent to an energetic little boy, I am a Deputy Principal at a nearby High School and have had the fortune to work in Education for over18 years.

I believe that schools play a massive part in supporting student wellbeing and development and feel that this is a strength of Glengarry Primary School. I look forward to bringing my experiences and perspectives as both a mother and an educator to assist at a Board Level.
