I feel very proud and honoured to be a trustee at POINT. 

I was brought up and have worked for most of my life in Oldham, starting out as a primary school teacher in the late eighties and have worked across both mainstream and special school sectors in a variety of teaching and leadership roles. 

It was in my work capacity that I was privileged to get to know and work collaboratively with colleagues at POINT and although now retired I remain in awe of their continued passion, commitment and tireless support to the children and families of Oldham. 

Over the years, I have seen this charity prosper and develop into the fantastic organisation it is today and I look forward to being an integral part of all future growth.

It is my sincere hope that my many and varied experiences in education will in some small way be useful to the Board and look forward to working alongside colleagues 'old and new'.
