Back To School

Wednesday 6th September, 2006
At 31 years of age, I'm back to school this term, but not as a pupil.

Before the summer break I was approached by the Chairman of the Governors at Sayes Court Junior School in Addlestone to ask if I would like to join the board.

He explained that the current board, a mix of parents and non-parents, sorely lacked IT skills & knowledge which were becoming more vital each year. The school has to spend considerable amounts of money on IT products and services in order to support this highly technological world. Having full-time IT staff simply isn't an option.

So I met with the headteacher, Mrs. Morrice, and confirmed I would be more than happy to help out and oversee the running of the school in all areas with particular focus on the IT budget and spending. I can see me getting my hands dirty on occasion too, I'm very local and can actually see the school from my front window...be rude not to sort that comms room out.
