Help make a difference as a school governor in Swindon
10:15am Tuesday 18th September 2012 in News
A NUMBER of vacancies for school governors currently need filling.
Isambard and Nova Hreod Secondary schools also have vacancies.
Anyone who is interested is invited to put themselves forward.
If you would like to be nominated for one of these schools, contact one of the Haydon Wick ward councillors, who will be obliged to consult with the school’s Chair of Governors before agreeing the appointment.
"I was also a Governor of Isambard Community School for the first five years of the shadow Governing Body’s existence and would recommend this as an excellent way to put something back into the community.
“It is certainly rewarding to be involved in the provision of our children’s education.
“I would encourage anyone who wants to make a difference to the next generation to put themselves forward. Full training will be given by the Governor Support Service.”
Coun Rex Barnett (Con, Haydon Wick) said: “I am a governor at Greemeadow School and can thoroughly recommend it.
“It is fulfilling and a great way to give something back to the community.”
