Nominate a School Governor for a New Year Honour

Seven School Governors which are all Chairs of Governors receive Members of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in the New Year’s Honours list announced today. I have listed each of them in full below. Congratulations to them all!

Melvyn Edward Butcher Chairman of Governors, Leagrave Primary School, Luton. For voluntary service to Education.

John Maxwell First Chairman of Board of Governors, Enniskillen Integrated Primary School. For voluntary service to Education in Northern Ireland.

Raymond Nicholas, JP Chairman of Governors, Almondbury High School, Kirklees. For voluntary service to Education.

Graham Smallbourne, Chairman of Governors, Purcell School,Bushey, Hertfordshire. For voluntary service to Music Education.

Rodney Mackie Iven Thomas Chairman of Governors, Holy Trinity Church of England Primary School, Ramsgate. For voluntary service to Education.

Mrs Doreen Lilian Tozer Chair of Governors, Dunstone Primary School and Vice-Chair of Governors, Stuart Road Primary School, Plymouth. For voluntary service to Education.

Mrs Mollie White Chair of Governors, Lantern's Nursery School and Children's Centre, Winchester, Hampshire. For voluntary service to Education.

It is a shame not to see more on the list considering the coalition aim for the big society.

However it is not the fault of government but ordinary people who can nominate the unsung school governors volunteers by nominating someone they know for a Queens’s honour.

How to nominate a School Governor for a honour

All you need to do is fill in a form which can be downloaded from the link above. Say why the School governor deserves to be recognised and get at least two short letters of support.

Let’s make it a new year’s resolution get more School Governors on the list next year!

Good Luck!
