My eldest son started at Hooe Primary in September 1998 and I become a governor when I successfully applied for a position as a parent governor in 1999.  My career has been in the financial community and I felt I could put my financial skills to good use.

 

Both my children received an excellent education at the school: Francis is studying Maths and will graduate from Cardiff University this year and Nick is currently studying History at Toronto University.

 

I have fulfilled many roles during my 17 years as a governor, including Chair of Governors.  I am passionate about my role as a governor and the delivery of education to the children in the local community.
