I’m Dave Tafner. Having 4 young children, ages currently 12, 10, 7 and 5, three of whom are still at Hooe school means I’ve had the school’s interest at heart for the best part of the last decade.

My work has been, for the most part, in and around the construction industry in various roles including management of staff, budgets and P+L accounts. 


I’d like to think I could put this experience, as well as bringing some balanced opinions from a parental point of view, to good use within the Hooe PA governors team. This is the 1st time I’ve taken on a role like this and, whilst the learning curve is steep, I’ve enjoyed the experience so far.

Outside of work, we are a busy family with lots of things always going on. We love to spend time down at our caravan in the Wadebridge/Padstow area and will be out and about no matter what the weather. 


We also enjoy walking and are soon to have 2 new (furry) additions to the family in the form of puppy Spaniels which will keep us on our toes I’m sure.
