Hello everyone, my name is Derek Williams. I have lived here in Glyncoch since 1967. My wife and I have raised a family here. Two of my three children live nearby and were educated here.
Since my retirement in 2008 I have got involved with both schools volunteering, helping with listening to readers in many of the classes, gardening projects, helping with upkeep of the school grounds, becoming a Governor and now being the Vice Chair of the Governors. All of my roles have brought me great joy and satisfaction.
I have witnessed many changes within the schools and I would like to think I played a part in these changes. The teaching staff are exceptional and in my opinion you will not find a better staff in any school. As long as I am able, I will continue to work with these brilliant children and staff to ensure they have the best learning experiences that they deserve.
