Board Of Governors
I believe I am a suitable candidate for the position of a parent on the board of governors at Hazelwood Integrated Primary School. I have been part of the Hazelwood family for the last twelve years and will continue being a part of the family for at least another four years. I have five children who all have attended Hazelwood Integrated Nursery, right through primary. Currently my two older children attend Hazelwood College. Some qualities that I would bring with me include: being open minded, approachable, respectful, supportive and willingness to work as part of a team, to help make key decisions that will benefit your children. I have many years’ experience of working with children and adolescents in various settings and now I would like a new challenge. If you think I can make a difference, show your support and vote for Julie Johnston. You won't regret it.
I am a journalist of 20 years. I own the media and publishing company Excalibur Press. I was transferred to Hazelwood Integrated Primary School at the age of 10 in 1988. After that all 6 of my siblings and a number of my nieces and nephews have attended the school. My own son Logan is in P3.
I've always been passionate about integrated education and have, at times, volunteered for the Integrated Education Fund over the years until Logan was placed in the nursery and I joined the school PTA.
I hope to be able to use my experience in the communication and media industry to help the school, pupils and parents communicate more effectively where necessary. I also hope to be able to use the contacts I have acquired over the years to benefit the school and its pupils.
Hi, I am new to the Hazelwood community but please don’t let that put you off! I have a daughter in P1 and another who I hope very soon will be in nursery, so my family will be linked to the school for some years to come. With a background in psychology, I work for a global charity, where my role helps services to show how effective they are at supporting some of the most vulnerable within our society. I also help these services to try and get more funding so they can do more much needed work. I strongly believe that all children should have the best opportunities available to them and should be given the chance to reach their full potential. A school and it’s community is so essential to that being achieved and being involved and supporting this school in whatever way I can is very important to me.
