Steve Doleman is a former Holywell High pupil who, after leaving school, served an apprenticeship in printing before joining North Wales Fire and Rescue Service. He has been a full-time firefighter since 2002. It’s a demanding role which involves working closely with colleagues and the other emergency services to respond to the needs of the community. In this respect, his teamworking skills are at a premium.
His fire safety role, together with his knowledge of the local communities, has given him opportunities to develop an insight into the problems and sometimes struggles that families have to deal with on a regular basis.
He is local man who built up his experience of school governance before joining the Ysgol Treffynnon governors, serving the Board of Ysgol Bro Carmel, one of our partner primary schools, since 2013.
He has a son in Year 9 and two younger children who are yet to make the transition to their secondary education. He has a passion for sports and during his formative years at high school he played football for Wrexham F.C and Tranmere Rovers. His weekends are now spent coaching his eldest son’s football team and watching his younger sons play.
Steve says, “I want to be a part of the team that helps develop the excellent standards the school is aiming for. Holywell and the surrounding districts deserve to have a school we can all be proud of. As a parent as well as a governor I want to encourage all of us to make that a reality.”
