A message from the Chair of Governors
My name is Kathy Keig and I am currently the Chair of Governors for The Holy Spirit school, I have been a governor for over 20 years, my sister used to work in the school and I was immediately attracted by the warmth and welcome I received whenever I visited.
I was invited to become a governor and signed up for a 3 year contract and have been here ever since; I am now retired. I have a background of working in the NHS and in the educational sector. Having been a director of Central Services at LIverpool University's Guild of Students,ee I have been able to draw on the skills I required in my working career to make a useful contribution in my governor role.
I see the role as a representative within the school, to act on behalf of the Local Authority and the Shrewsbury Diocese, to ensure all statutory regulations are met and that we run a safe and secure school for the children. I also believe we have to support the Head and staff to achieve the very high standards they set to ensure that every child achieves their maximum educational potential .
As Chair of Governors I believe that I have the responsibility to see that, " In the spirit of love and forgiveness our family learns to grow with hope and joy " Then we are truly putting our Catholic ethos and mission into practice every day.
