" I have been teaching for 12 years and I have worked at Cockshutt for 3 of these. Prior to this I have worked in two small rural schools and a large primary, teaching in all year groups. As a governor I am keen to support and develop both schools to create strong and successful learning environments for all of the children and staff. In my spare time I enjoy walking, reading and gardening".

Dominica Kunz - Co-opted Governor

Term of office 27/9/17 to 26/9/2021




My name is Dominica but most people know me as Minnie. A Cockshutt resident since 2011, I have always seen the village school as a vital cog in the life of our community. The first time I entered the school I was impressed by its happy atmosphere and by how confident and articulate the children were. In January 2014 I decided to offer my services as a volunteer reader/helper and I consider this to be one of the best things I have ever done.


I take an active part in village life - the regular community coffee mornings, the W.I., the annual horticultural show, CADS, and the church - and I would love to encourage even more interaction between the school and some of these diverse groups as I feel it can only benefit all involved, young and old.


During my working years I was initially involved in manufacturing, working mainly in production planning and scheduling, then as PCs were becoming more widely used within the workplace I changed direction and worked first as a programmer and then as an IT trainer teaching computing skills to adults. My main subjects were spreadsheet and database at all levels from basic up to and including programming.

I have been teaching for 10 years and in classes with children from Nursery up to year 2. I have been a teacher governor at Cockshutt for the last 7 years and am very excited to have been co-opted as part of the federation. I am passionate about the Early Years and giving children the best start.

In my spare time, I am usually busy being a Mum to my two children but enjoy reading and planning holidays.
