|Carly Coull - Chair of Governors|
"As a parent of 2 children that attend Our Lady's I have been a governor for a number of years now and thoroughly enjoy my role. I work for the NHS within a community setting and have worked within a pediatric setting for many years. I believe my work life experience and parenting experience has given me the knowledge and passion to help to create a fantastic governing body. I believe Our school provides a happy, safe and exciting learning environment, enabling the children to achieve their true potential. The children at Our Lady's show exceptional behaviour and impeccable manners and this is evident when walking around the school. The children always receive positive feedback and compliments when out on school visits, making the Governing body very proud. (Well done children) .Our school encourages parental involvement we feel this is extremely important and is something we very much encourage. If you feel you can contribute to our school in any way or would like more information regarding the Governing body please get in touch via the school office."
Brenda McDermott - Vice Chair
"My name is Brenda McDermott. I have two daughters and three lovely grandchildren. I have lived in Palace fields for forty two years. For thirty of them, I have worked in education and have run a Brownie Pack, first at Our Lady's then we moved to Palace fields Community school. I retired two years ago and now have time to help as I attend Our Lady's Church. I became a governor as Our Lady's is very special to me. I attend as many training sessions as I can to help me keep informed about my role as a governor"
" I have been a governor at Our Lady's school since 1986 so I have seen many changes over the years. My son attended here and my godson is also a pupil. I have recently retired from Riverside College where I was a tutor of Spanish, French and English for speakers of other languages. I therefore have a lot of experience which I bring to the Governing Body, with my particular areas of interest being Language and Literacy. As a practising Catholic, I am also keen on following the religious life of the school. I enjoy reading, singing, dancing and swimming."
"Born in Liverpool, I have lived in Runcorn since leaving the Army in 1977. I have been an active member of St. Martins community since coming to Runcorn. Married to Avril we have three grown up children and two grandchildren. I retired early (Aged 62) from my job of contract manager with DHL, in 2009. For the past three years I have worked, on a voluntary basis, with Cheshire Fire and Rescue Heritage division, caring for and displaying fire Engines of yesteryear. I keep pretty busy in retirement, sometimes wondering how I ever found time to work!"
