I am assuming that stating that I want to be a governor to keep an eye on little Araminta's progress, as she is so G&T would not be the done thing. grin.

Everythign I have put in my statement sounds so bloody worthy and inane.

Any tips (and yes, my statemetn is written after trawling the archives!!!)

I purloined another Mnetters statement from the archives basically, and just stick in my other voluntary work with bits about enthusiasm and supporting the home school partnership!

1/3 sheet A4. I thought it naughty to use 8pt type and extend the margins grin

Of course, I really only do want in to spy on teachers and get dd into a grammar. Do you reckon honesty would work grin

PPsst Ruby, can you send me a link to your archive finding, as i am doing the same...!

LOL at Ruby. You have a natural gift here. Think a career in politics should be your next step.

VIxen try this mumsnet.com/Talk?topicid=43&threadid=235794#4744779.

My statement is largely courtesy of Marz - I thought hers was deffo good enough to steal grin and to hide my ulterior motives behind

Have a look at this site for advice:

cool thanks - I have to condense mine into 50 words shock

(Buggrit. Feel sure a governor would not say 'cool'. Or, indeed, buggrit!)

RubyRioja Fri 14-Sep-07 19:02:38

I would! Sounds earthy - and real!
