Prior to being elected to the NSW Parliament in 2015, Jihad Dib was principal of Punchbowl Boys’ High. Over a period of 9 years, he transformed the school by developing strong relationships with the community, local organisations, and government agencies. By bringing our community, families, and their values into the heart of the school, he transformed its culture. Enrolments doubled and educational outcomes improved – with the school providing opportunities for its students to reach their full potential.
Jihad and his wife Erin are raising their three children in the southwestern suburbs, and he will always fight for our public schools, hospitals, housing, and cost of living.
Jihad is very proud of this incredible community. He understands the importance of harmony in our area and works tirelessly to promote and improve our community. He is enthusiastic and determined to make sure that everyone gets their fair share of funding for better services and infrastructure. He fights for everyone to reach their full potential.
A former board member of the Australia Day Council of NSW, the NSW Police Commissioner’s Advisory Panel, and the SBS Community Advisory Committee, Jihad has campaigned tirelessly for inclusiveness and the celebration of diversity in our society
Since entering Parliament, Jihad has been a strong representative for our community and does not shy away from raising issues important to us all.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Jihad advocated strongly for adequate services, support, and fairness. He understands that we need to invest in skills, training, and education to get the best start in life for young people as well as providing the best opportunities for families to succeed.
He continues to deliver infrastructure improvements, and actively encourages and supports initiatives for sporting and community groups.
