Rosemary Hadfield awarded MBE for services to education
We are delighted to report that Rosemary Hadfield, formerly Chair of Governors at St Clement Danes and now Member and Trustee of the Danes Educational Trust, has been awarded an MBE in the New Year’s Honours List for her services to education over many years as a school governor. Commenting on this award, Rosemary said: “I am so proud to have been awarded this honour; my 30 plus years of governance have been thought provoking, exciting and challenging, enabling me to work with an inspirational head, Dr Valentine and some outstanding and dedicated staff and governors at an excellent school, St Clement Danes. No school can function without a governing body and I am pleased that this personal award recognises the many hours of hard work which volunteers across the country give to our schools.” When Rosemary stepped down as Chair of Governors at the school in Spring 2016, an interview with her appeared in our newsletter which can be read here. The staff and Governors at St Clement Danes are all thrilled that Rosemary has been recognised for her dedication and hard work at the school over many, many years and send our warmest congratulations to her.
