Acting Chair of Governors / Church Governor

As Vicar of St. Luke’ Church I have an automatic place on the school Governors and so have been involved with the school since coming here in 1998. It has been very satisfying to see the progress of the school over the past few years to the position of real strength and stability which has now been achieved. As you would expect I have a particular interest in maintaining the link between church and school and am keen for this to thrive and develop as it has done in recent years. Church of England Schools have a unique opportunity to be both rooted in the local community and also providing an ethos and a context for education which is shaped by the Christian story. I am always delighted to meet parents and would love to know if there are further ways in which the church can support you and the school.

I have been Clerk to the Governors since April 2011. My duties include preparing documents, attending meetings to take minutes, advising on procedural issues, governing body membership, organising training for governors and generally making sure governors are kept informed of developments from Department for Education, the Local Authority and London Diocesan Board for Schools.

I am a Labour Councillor in Westminster and have spent my working life promoting the cause of citizen engagement in decision-making. I have an MSc in Public Policy and experience in the training of local authority elected members.

 

I am now self-employed, but worked most of my life for the NHS and am an expert advisor on public scrutiny.

 

Locally, I am especially committed to the interests of youth in Paddington and play an active role as a member of the Paddington Charities Trust; Paddington Arts; Paddington Farm Trust and Paddington Youth Enterprises Ltd (a Social Enterprise for Youth).

 

I live very close to the school and chair the voluntary network of arts / culture and sports / leisure groups known as the Paddington Festival.  I have wide community links with individuals & voluntary organisations in North Westminster – including St Luke’s church.

 

I hope to make good use of my knowledge and local connections to further develop school relationships with local people and the City Council.

Foundation Governor

I am from the Midlands and moved to London in my early 20’s.  London is such an exciting city, especially as people from many nations of the world have made it their home.  I enjoy the cultural diversity and the fact that we are all unique. A cause for celebration!

I worked in local Government for 10 years. I then became a mature student and in the same year became a Christian.  I really enjoyed teaching children on Sundays so I qualified as a teacher.  I taught in primary and middle schools for 10 years.  I’ve been a children, youth and family worker since 2000 and joined the staff of St Luke’s Church in autumn 2014.

Education is an immense privilege and it’s an amazing time of academic, physical, emotional, moral and spiritual growth.  It is so important to learn as much as possible while young and to maintain a lifelong love of learning and discovery.  St Luke’s is a happy, inspirational school.

In my spare time I enjoy Ceroc dancing (modern jive). I love to travel. I enjoy skiing. Oh and I still like riding on huge roller coasters!!

LDBS Governor

I have lived in Queen’s Park for six years and I am a member of St.Luke Church. I work for Camden Council in the Children, Schools and Families Directorate.

 

Since moving to Queen’s Park I have grown to love the area in a very short time. There is something special about Queen’s Park that you will struggle to find elsewhere. For that reason I am an active member of the community and have, and continue to be involved with community events and campaigns including; the annual Queen’s Park festival and Fireworks display; Queen’s Park Community Council campaign group; and the local neigbourhood group. I am passionate about where I live and my community.

 

I came to St.Luke’s church through the homeless shelter programme as a volunteer, and continue to volunteer at the shelter.

 

I decided to become a governor of St. Luke’s school because I wanted to do more to help my local community. I love the strong ethos of the school and admire the challenging work it does to support children with fulfiling their full potential.

 

I hope that as a governor I will be able to contribute to the great work that is already taking place in the school.

In 2016, I joined St Luke’s as a London Diocesan Board for Schools (LDBS) Governor to make a difference to the life chances of children in my community.  With the aim of providing critical challenge and support to the leadership team of the School, I am the subject link Governor for maths and humanities (geography and history) and am also part of the Curriculum Committee.

 

Professionally, as a Consultant for the Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution (CEDR), I assist people and organisations to bring about sustainable change through engaging constructively with conflict.  Academically, I hold Master’s degrees in Organisational Behaviour and International Affairs.

“I am a Foundation governor at St Luke’s from March 2015. Originally from Hong Kong, I arrived in the UK to study and has since made London my home.  I am a Chartered Accountant and currently work for an international group in global tax risk management. I have two young children: a son aged 12 and a daughter aged 7.

 

On a voluntary basis, I served as the Treasurer of a South London Christian charity called Copleston Centre and a member of the ADIT Sub-Committee of The Chartered Institute of Taxation. As an active member of my church, The Chinese Church in London, I am involved in its translation (Mandarin – Cantonese) ministry.

 

I am inspired to use my skills to bring a different (and hopefully valuable) perspective to the development of St Luke’s in support of our next generation.”
