Being a LAB member is a unique chance for me to get involved and give back something to the community and WPS. I have two young children in the school and its vitally important that I help the school to be as successful as possible. I have spent many years representing very young individuals who have committed some very serious offences. I am often face to face with someone who I believe is a victim of failed schooling. I am keen to ensure that every child at WPS benefits from being part of a successful school.
