Anne George Raphael
As a full time mother, I have been gifted flexibility allowing me to be greatly involved in my sons schooling. My desire to be a parent governor stems from my passion for primary education and creating supportive and inclusive school environments.
Having some experience in the field of education, I appreciate the priceless efforts involved in planning and working around the high demands of school life.
During my free time, I volunteer at the Willesden Scout group and the Children’s Ministry at the church where I worship, building relationships of trust and understanding. I like sports, especially cricket.
Each governor has one vote across all committees.
