Tribute to our late Education Officer, Mr. Phil James
Phil or Mr. James as he was known by our education visitors was an integral part of our community successes since he joined us in 2002 as our Education Officer.
Phil developed the Second Half ‘out of school’ educational programme along with various education initiatives for vulnerable young people who were struggling with mainstream education. His professionalism ensured that we were successful and gained numerous positive outcomes.
Phil was also a pragmatic thinker of the team who kept everyone on their toes with his quick quizzes and sparkling wit. He also brought a sunshine and warmth, or sarcasm and groans, to the office on a daily basis.
We will all miss Phil at Rodney Parade but we will ensure his legacy lives on through the continuation of his educational initiatives.
