Hi, my name is Chris Linke and I have two children at GSLS, and have loved being at the school since 2010. I have been heavily involved with the Parents & Friends Committee and the Canteen and am honoured to be part of Governing Council now too.
My employment background is Executive and Personal Assistant to various Managers and Directors in NSW and being part of Marketing and Fundraising.
Our time at GSLS started back in 2007, and we couldn’t be happier with how our children have grown academically and socially in their time here. My husband and I live on our farm at St Kitts, north of the Barossa Valley, with our 6 children, all of which have attended Good Shepherd Lutheran School. We currently have 2 children still here. I attended GSLS myself and have been on the school council for several years now, and am extremely passionate about helping to be a part of keeping this wonderful school growing and thriving for many future families to enjoy and benefit from.
After studying B.Bus Ag(Com) Sydney University (Orange), I’ve acquired +20 years’ experience in commercial and industrial business working in Australian and abroad. I’m the General Manager of the Ahrens Group’s – Grain Storage and Handling Division which led to my wife Sarah and I moving to the Barossa 10 years ago from central NSW. We have 3 beautiful little girls – all attending (and loving) Good Shepherd. Being on the school governing council enables me to assist in continuing the schools positive trajectory, while ensuring we maintain the core focus of providing a safe and wonderful learning environment for our children.
