    I have been working at Marjorie McClure Special School for sixteen years and I have been a school Governor since September 2006.  My main role within the school is working on the children's physical needs.  I enjoy being a School Governor because I can see the hard work that goes into the school by all concerned to cater for the children's need.  I can also help to bring some additional idea and views to improve opportunities for all pupils.
