I asked all of Governors why they had joined the governing body and the answer was much the same from everyone. We have a deep interest in education, and want to put something back into our community. Dympna put it elegantly: ‘The role of school governor has given me the opportunity to continue my interest and commitment to excellence in the education of the young. It continues to be an exciting and fulfilling challenge and I regard it as a great privilege and joy to be part of a thriving and ambitious community.’
She speaks for us all.
