This is my first year as a school governor although I have been involved with St Catherine’s College as a parent for ten years. I wanted to serve as a governor to give something back to the school and to influence changes from a parental perspective. My daughter is a pupil at the school and her older brothers also benefitted from attending, both academically and from being part of a supportive community.
My volunteer roles have run alongside my children’s interests and activities, most recently involving chess as I run a primary school chess club. I am also a bell ringer at St Peter’s, Bexhill.
