Executive Committee

President: Nigel Pearn

Nigel works in the Department of Education supporting state schools to do the great work they do. Before that he was a primary school teacher. Before that he was a clown, and before that a puppeteer – all obvious career pathways. He has two children currently at the school, and a third who will join them in a few years' time. He considers himself lucky to be part of a school community as inclusive and forward thinking as ISHS, where opportunities abound for students, both academically and socially, and where the teachers are committed and caring. He's a true believer in parent engagement as one of the keys to school success. If you have any suggestions or concerns that you want to bring to the P&C he's contactable through the P&C email:

Vice President (Operations): Tony Ellison

Tony works as a client executive in the IT industry.  His eldest son started at ISHS in 2020 in grade 7. Tony and his wife Yvette also have two younger daughters who are currently at Indooroopilly State Primary School, who will also come to ISHS in the coming years. Tony enjoyed his time as Vice President of the Primary School for many years focusing on school functions, fundraising via grants, community engagement and cultural diversity. Tony's interest in the P&C is to encourage parental engagement, appreciating that active participation in the school has a positive impact on children's academic, social, and emotional wellbeing at the school.

Vice President (Diversity and Inclusion): Kim McKillop

Kim is an independent learning & development consultant who specialises in productivity and communication. She has two children at ISHS; one is neurodiverse, and the other is gender diverse. Kim is a long-time advocate of diversity and inclusion and passionate supporter of education who brings her prior experience volunteering and contributing to Primary School P&C programs including School Banking, Active Travel and STEAM activities.

Vice President (Communications​): Angela Licari Rose

Treasurer: Anthony Whyte

Antony is the new P&C treasurer, dad to three at the school (grades 7, 10 and 12) and a partner at the accounting firm BDO. About 7 years ago there was that awkward silence at the Ironside State School P&C AGM after they called for a treasurer … and then everyone looked at the only accountant in the room. That awkward silence and those looks of expectation turned out to be blessings in disguise because they opened Antony's eyes to the true value of the P&C as an opportunity to be closer to his children's education, to work with the school leadership to have a positive impact at the school and to form closer connections with the community including some lifelong friendships. 

Assistant Treasurer: Annika Stanley​

Secretary: Michael Richards
