I became a Local Authority governor at Comber Grove in October 2019. I am a lawyer at the Bank of England, advising and taking action against regulatory breaches by the firms and individuals the Bank regulates. I am also a mother of 2 small children, aged 5 and 1.
I am from Sri Lankan heritage and grew up in South West London, where I went to a primary school very similar to Comber Grove. Neither of my parents finished school due to adversity and civil war in their country. I was the first in my family to go to university to study Law at the London School of Economics. I became a fully qualified solicitor in 2011.
I live locally and enjoy the cultural diversity and wonderful cuisine in and around Peckham and Camberwell. I am passionate about sharing my experiences and challenges with the staff and children at Comber Grove. When I first arrived at the School, I was struck by how enthusiastic and compassionate the school staff were. I am really excited about being a governor at Comber Grove and looking forward to working with the children.
