Portsmouth school launches postcard art project

Have your say

A GOVERNOR at an infants school in Sarisbury Green is appealing to people from the community ‘with a real desire to see the school thrive’ to join the team.

Eloise Appleby, a parent governor at Sarisbury Infants, which is rated outstanding by Ofsted, is calling on residents to fill two community governor vacancies.

She said: ‘You don’t need to be an expert in education to become a governor, but you must have some regular time to spare, live locally to the school and have a real desire to see the school thrive at a time of change.

‘You may have professional or personal skills to offer, or you may simply be good at listening to information and making judgements and decisions.

‘In return, you have the satisfaction of knowing you are doing something genuinely useful for your community, learning different skills, and meeting new people.’

Interested parties should call chair of governors Christine Jones on 01489 481 804 or Charlotte Weavers, acting head on 01489 573 800.
