I joined the governing body at Comber Grove Primary School as a parent governor in September 2019. My eldest child had just left Comber Grove to start her secondary school journey, after experiencing some wonderful times here. My youngest child is in year 1 and he enjoys school very much. I believe he will prosper at Comber Grove. My personal circumstances allowed an opportunity for me to have more time at home, become a lot more engaged with my children’s education and find ways to support the school. This led to me being elected parent governor, which I am tremendously proud of. I have had the opportunity to understand the daily going-ons at the school, which has led to wider understanding of the education system. Seeing first hand at how hard all the staff at Comber Grove work in giving the children a very high standard of education, whilst keeping an open mind on all the diverse needs of all the children has been fantastic. At Comber Grove, we are proud that there is such wide diversity of different ethnic backgrounds who attend the school, bringing a richness of culture to our school community. I feel truly honoured of being part of such a nurturing environment for children starting their first years of education. After taking time out to focus more on home life with my children, I worked in bakery, and learnt how to make many different kinds of breads cakes and delicious treats. Despite this, keeping healthy is a must for me, which is why my favourite hobbies are swimming, running and a daily bike ride with the family - and of course - a cheeky catch up with my friends too.
