A shockingly long day today, which saw me go direct from the train home from work onto a School Governors meeting.
It is often said if you want something done ask a busy person and looking around at my fellow governors tonight I realised just how true this was; as sitting around the table were some of the busiest people I know!
It was also reassuring to think that those people around the table discussing the school budget were all there for the good of the school that they loved, not for financial reward.
Being a school governor is incredibly rewarding and schools need the talents that governing bodies bring from their everyday jobs, be it financial, legal, HR, marketing or just plain thinking and a challenging nature.
Perhaps you would make a good school governor at a school near you?
