Maybe you mean: 'home' or 'home-2'
BIRGITTE ATTLEY – CO-OPTED GOVERNOR
I have lived in and around this part of rural Hampshire for most of my life and was schooled in these buildings more than fifty years ago when it was a Junior School.
My two children went to school in Petersfield before going away to university. They both now live in London and I enjoy spending time with them and my wonderful grandchildren.
I was fortunate to be at home with my children when they were small and loved every minute. Once they were settled in school I ran my own ceramics studio teaching children and adults, including our head teacher. After that I helped my partner run his manufacturing business.
Now that I’m retired and living on a small farm on the outskirts of Petersfield, I have more time to pursue my love of life in the country. Alongside my duties managing the farm with its menagerie of animals, I am a keen beekeeper, sheep advisor and volunteer gardener.
I started volunteering at the school as a Year R classroom helper offering pet therapy to those children who might benefit from extra individual attention. Supporting this amazing school further as a governor seemed a natural and rewarding next step.
