Sara O'Connor: Parent Governor
I was elected as a parent governor in February 2018. I live in Loosely Row, and both of my children attend or have attended St John's.
I enjoy being involved in the school community. I volunteered on the Parent Association committee for two years, ran several extracurricular school fundraising events such as Family Bingo, organised trips to Matilda the Musical and the ballet, hosted Outdoor Club events, and I helped run the parent community Facebook page. I've also been heavily involved in the second phase of the Music Pavilion building project at the school.
In my professional life, I spent 13 years as a children's book editor, helping to publish over 200 books, then re-trained as a software developer. I run a project that connects children's book authors and illustrators with schools as pen pals, and I volunteer to teach children 3D software and coding in schools and at coding clubs.
I am committed to helping St John's be the best school it can be.
