Year 2 SHARKS - MR HIRST
I have been a governor at this school since 1996, previously at the Barnby Dun Middle School.
My interests are gardening on my allotment in Barnby Dun, at home in Kirk Sandall and at our holiday cottage in Scotland. It doesn't leave a lot of free time, but I do like to go on holidays, when not involved with my grandchildren.
I am now retired, but used to be employed by Doncaster Council as an architect, designing mainly schools, children's centres and libraries.
My interest in education is deep rooted and my family keep me up to date with their work. My son is a maths teacher, daughter in law a primary head, daughter also a deputy head and my wife, a retired music teacher.
My aim is to make sure that the pupils of the school achieve their full potential and enjoy their time at Barnby Dun.
