Students studying under Squirrel Hall

Sheila Jaswon

First Elected/ Appointed: 2018

Profession: Teacher, retired member of staff at KAS

About: I trained as a State Registered nurse and then paediatric nurse at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children before taking time out to raise two sons who both attended KAS. I retrained as a Primary School teacher and studied for a Masters degree in Early Years Education at the Institute for Education. I then worked in the state sector before moving to KAS as classroom teacher. With a particular interest in outdoor learning (my dissertation focused on the benefits of children playing and learning outside), I set up and ran the school farm for more than twelve years as well as helping to create and manage the school Apiary. I was staff representative on council for many years, regularly attended parent/staff meetings and was staff member on the KASS committee for three years. I was elected onto council at the 2018 AGM and serve on the KASS committee.
