“She is a shining example of not only the leadership that we have in our schools, but also of the amazing teaching staff we have here in Rhondda Cynon Taf.
“We have a wealth of talent in our schools and in our classrooms across our County Borough and are proud to have some of the finest school buildings in Wales due to a programme of major investment over recent years.
“More and more of our children are being taught in first-class facilities and, through their hard work, commitment and the invaluable support of our teaching staff, are really reaping the rewards.”
