Hazzard welcomes New School Governors Resources
Sinn Féin MLA Chris Hazzard has welcomed the launch of new resources for school governors aimed at improving the skills and capacity of governors in dealing with an increasingly demanding role.
The Sinn Féin Education spokesperson said:
"I think this will be welcomed by Schools, their Boards of Governors, and parents right across the North.
"Governors play a vital role in the management and development of our schools, thus they need to have the capacity to deal with an increasing workload and an evolving educational environment.
"I’m sure that this new Guide for Governors, Internet portal, and Smartphone App will help governors embrace the challenges they face’
“It will also gives assurance to parents that those in charge of their child's school are provided with the best possible assistance.
"Given that innovation plays a key role in driving up standards in our schools, I have no doubt that this new suite of resources for our governors will have a positive impact for local pupils and governors alike."
