A GREAT Yarmouth school is appealing for volunteers from the local community to join its governing body.
Greenacre First, Middle and Nursery School is giving people the chance to make a difference in their local community by becoming a school governor.
The school, which has more than 450 pupils, is working with national charity School Governors' One-Stop Shop (SGOSS) in order to fill the vacancies.
Vicky Gregson, of SGOSS, said: “School governors form the largest volunteering force in the country and anyone over 18 can apply. It is important to stress that community governors do not need to be parents or have any particular skills to add value to a school governing body. The most important requirement is that you want to make a positive difference to the education of local children.”

Governors have responsibility for matters such as planning the school's long term future, allocating budgets and appointing senior staff. The role, which requires sparing about six to eight hours a month, not only benefits the education of children, but also provides the volunteer with opportunities for self development and training.
Anyone interested in the role or would like more information should contact the SGOSS on 020 7288 9533 or email email@example.com.
