A seasoned IT professional. Worked with in various IT roles and within varied and interesting industries. Currently working within a global investment/financial company. A strong advocate of “to have a coherent, fair-minded and prosperous society, we need to start by building well-educated, all rounded and strong young people.”
I will endeavour to spend my voluntary time to support the school and the staff to raise standards and achieve our mission/values.
I wish to introduce myself to everyone. My name is Brenda Hill and I am a Governor at St Mary Magdalene Church of England School. I am also a Church Warden at All Saints’ Church, which means Church and School are involved with each other. My other claim to church is that I am a Bell Ringer.
My name is Jeff Perrins. I am aged 64 and married to Linda. I have one step son with three children and I have 1 dog called Odi. I was raised in Smethwick but I’ve lived in West Bromwich for nearly 40 years! I am an ex-primary school teacher and headteacher in Sandwell and Walsall. My interests include being a season ticket holder for WBA and a member of Handsworth Golf Club.
I am a parent governor at St Mary Magdalene Church of England School. Having previously worked within the education sector for over 10 years and having an IT background, I am very familiar with how a school operates on a day to day basis and have the knowledge of this. As well as my daughter attending the school, I am very much interested in fully supporting and helping the school and its staff to achieve every child receiving the best education. My interests and hobbies include reading, traveling and spending time with family.
I wanted to be a school Governor because I want the school to be the best it can be! I have lived in West Bromwich all of my life and I am committed to ensuring that children get the best possible start in life so that they can reach their full potential. I have had a long career in Nursing and I understand how crucial it is to have a sympathetic and caring nature. Along with understanding that every individual needs are different, which is especially true for children. I have looked after patients who have gone through all walks of life and I have always given patients my 100%, it is important to me to make a difference to a patients care and experience, therefore I would like to take this outlook with making a difference to a child’s school life. I have got two young children who attend this school my son is seven and my daughter is three. I have always been proud to say that my children attend this school. As a parent I always want the best for my children and for them to achieve their dreams, I love that I’ve got the chance to represent them and as a parent Governor I will represent all of our children and try my best to ensure that they fulfil their dreams.
Being a parent Governor for me great pride and a sense of achievement. Go team St Mary Magdalene!
