I became a co-opted Governor in Ludwell Primary in September 2016. In addition to sitting on the full governing body, I sit on the curriculum and staffing committee.
My husband and I moved down to this beautiful part of the world in February 2015 from Scotland to be near our family. Since moving we have become grandparents for the first time and are thoroughly enjoying the role!
In Scotland I had been a teacher for about 25 years. I really missed working with the children and I am delighted now be a governor in your school. I am looking forward to supporting the Head Teacher and Staff in all the wonderful work they do for the children.
In Scotland I also worked as a complementary therapist in an adult cancer hospice and a children's hospice. Since moving to Dorset I work part time in Julia's House in Poole.
