Our Governors

A Message from the Chair of Governors

In 2012 when I got a substantive post in Cardiff we

started to look for a school between Swansea and Cardiff

where we would like our children to attend. This was how

we found St David’s, Church in Wales, Primary School in

Colwinston and shortly afterwards moved into the village. 

 

We had to wait a further 3 years for the children to be old

enough to attend the school.

 

Since the children started school we have never been

disappointed in the way all staff in St David’s have seen to

both our children, even at times when they were clearly in

the wrong! As parent governor it became clear to me that

the sole aim of the school is to enable each and every pupil to achieve their full potential. I was further astonished on how difficult this is due to a significant shortfall in human and financial resources and how successful Mrs Hoffrock and her team is in achieving these goals, despite the obstacles.

 

We did not decide on a church school for the children to be indoctrinated into the dogma of Christianity, as I for one don’t feel one can force an individual to believe in anything, but we wanted our children to be exposed to the example of Christ’s love, humility and service. Outside of academic achievements I strongly feel that these attributes will make for a better society no matter what you believe or don’t believe in.

 

I would like to encourage all parents to work with the teachers and governors in their efforts to achieve the full potential of every pupil in St David’s. Please help us to build a bright future for every pupil and a society that mirrors the tolerance and kindness of Christ.

                Chair of Governors, Abrie Theron
