Hello all. I have been a Parent Governor at Bowes school since 2019 and have lived in the village for over 30 years with a short time in Leeds while attending university. I have now been nominated as a Foundation Governor which has been accepted. I currently work as a Warehouse Mover at GSK in Barnard Castle though I have a long education back-round in Construction.
One of my main reasons to join the Governors was to ensure that the excellent education standards and values of Bowes that my son received will be continued so that my daughter will benefit when she starts in 2022.
I have found the role of being a Governor interesting but also challenging, (there is a lot to learn!). I am still trying to find my feet with it all, not helped by COVID but hope that I can make a valuable contribution to both Schools.
