Hazel Lord has been appointed as School Governor at Blackrod Anglican/ Methodist Church School, representing St Katharine’s Church.  Her role as school Governor includes social, moral and cultural aspects in the lives of children, Hazel also serves on St Katharine’s Parochial Church Council (PCC).

Hazel was appointed as school Governor in the latter part of 2015 and is an important link between church and school, she interacts with staff and pupils, and with Mrs Foy who leads all aspects of the school syllabus and religious education.

Each classroom has incorporated a prayer space and it is up to the teachers and pupils to decide how to utilize it.  An important aspect is teaching the children to respect each other, enlightening them on the values of different cultures and respecting those differences.

The position of the school Governor will alternate between a St Katharine’s representative and the Methodist Church representative.

We wish Hazel every success in her new role.
