I was born in South Wales and moved to Durham when I was 10 years old. I am in my late 40’s and have been married for 20 years.
Being an older parent of two young children made me realise just how much things have changed since the 1970s! I am keen to learn more about the current education system so that I can better support my children and work in the school to maintain current good practice and further improve its outcomes for all concerned. Hence, it seemed a good idea to be a Parent Governor rather than just a volunteer helper.
Prior to this I worked in personnel and training in both the private and public sectors before retraining in holistic and complementary therapies.
I think that the school should continue in its excellent inclusive work with the local community, supporting our diverse student population and to be the school of first choice for children living in Bowburn.
I thoroughly enjoyed my younger years at school, especially the excellent school meals and wonderful staff. I wish for my children to have such a positive experience as I did.
