I have seen first-hand what a fantastic job the dedicated staff do in nurturing each child to be the very best they can. I’m now retired, so giving my time and experience, as a Governor is no real inconvenience, but affords a huge source of satisfaction knowing that I’m playing a supporting role in that nurturing process. I’m proud to serve on the Governing Board, on three sub committees and to help out in whatever way I can.
