My name is Leonidas Anastasakis and as you have probably figured out from the name I am Greek. When I came to the UK for the first time in a sunny September day in 1998 I couldn’t imagine that in 2016 I will still be here not just myself but with my wife and our two sons as well. I am working at Aston Business School as a lecturer In Quantitative Methods for Business having done a PhD at the University of Sheffield In Business Forecasting. My involvement with St Peter’s started three years ago when my son Iakovos started his school journey in the Reception class. Now in class 2S he is enjoying every aspect of his school life, which is mainly down to the effort of all school staff but also the love and kindness of his classmates. With an emphasis on the school’s Ethos and Christian values but also the respect of each pupil religious belief, St Peter’s has been able to create an environment that learning can flourish. This is why I wanted to join the school’s governing body and in my role as governor I intend to work on securing that the school will continue to offer this experience to the pupils while at the same time address parents’ concerns and queries. Furthermore, as a member of the finance and building subcommittee I will be working towards ensuring the sustainability and financial stability of the school. Playing with my two sons and enjoying a nice bottle of preferably Greek wine with my wife is what I like most but I am also interested (time permitted) in the company of a nice politics or history book. Any parents please, feel free to talk to me during the morning dropping off or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope all parents find my contribution to the school’s governing body useful.
