Mrs Sue Blair, Foundation Governor.
Mr John Harris, Foundation Governor (Non-voting).
I am a foundation governor and joined Usk Church in Wales school in September this year. I have lived in Monmouth for the last three years with my wife and daughter; previously we lived at High Cross just outside Newport. My wife teaches at Lliswerry High School in Newport and my daughter works for a steel company in Newport.
I am now retired after working for 33yrs at Orb steel works in Newport where I was head of Mechanical and Civil engineering.
I have always been interested in education and was Chair of Governors at Maesglas Primary school in Newport for 11 years; I am also vice chair of Ysgol-Y-Fenni primary school in Abergavenny.
I worship in the Parish of Panteg and I am secretary of the PCC.
I have many interests, walking, music, motorcycling but my great passion is fly fishing for Salmon and Trout on the River Usk, in fact during the season I spend more time at Usk than I do at home!!!!
I was delighted to be invited to Usk Primary School and I look forward to working with such a highly committed team.
