Alex Mason Chair of Governors
Hi everybody. I’m Group Captain Alex Mason and I’ve been formally appointed by the Senior British Officer, General Mead, to be the Chair of the School Governors Committee. Whilst I’ve been appointed into the role as a formal Secondary Duty, I’m also a very willing volunteer.
I arrived in Naples in January 2022 and this is my first role in NATO. I am a Logistics Officer by background, having joined the Royal Air Force in 1998, but out here I am responsible for Strategic Communications. I am serving here Unaccompanied and I don’t have any children of my own, but I am very keen to be involved within the British Community.
I hope that my appointment as the Chair of the Committee will allow me to act as an objective critical friend and as an interlocutor with the multitude of organisations with an interest in the school. I am particularly keen to ensure that the School Infrastructure Project (which is led by a UK-based organisation) goes as smoothly as possible and the quality of children’s education provision is not compromised at any stage.
