Gnassounou P Gontrand Nounagnon
Greetings to all, my name is Gontrand and I am an Associate Governor appointed in January 2022. I am also a parent with 2 young children in the school. I am privileged to serve on the Finance, Premises, Health and Safety Committee. I am passionate about governance and Learning & Development, excited about the opportunity to support the wonderful work being done by the church, the governing body and the school leadership & staff at St Philip Howard Catholic School.
I trained as a professional in Inclusive Finance & Project Management. My work involves supporting vulnerable children in the developing world, particularly in Africa, and their families and communities. I also sit in the board of Directors for a couple of financial institutions providing access to financial services to vulnerable people.I believe that school plays a crucial role in the development of children, only considering the time they spend there. And Covid has demonstrated this well. It is therefore important to ensure that their time in school is fun, with access to excellent education, in a safe environment to ensure their prosperous futures.
