Parent Council minutes – click here
As you will know Mr West is retiring in the summer. Parent Council members, councillors and I interviewed a strong contest yesterday but Mr Lyon has been successful and will start as permanent DHT for us in August. Mr Lyon comes with vast experience both locally, in other local authorities and from across the world where he was an inspector, too. When he arrived back from the middle east last year he took up a supply teacher post here and helped us through the first ‘lockdown’. It is humbling for us all to note that he was determined to stay at Smithton regardless of the position as he feels a real commitment here.
Parent Council members and local councillors proved to be a real asset to the interviewing process and I thank them for their time.
Have a good Thursday!
