“She is a valued member of not only our school, but of the wider community as well, as she plays a big part in the local parish too.

“The children love her, as do the rest of the staff here at Holy Rood, and she has had an impact on countless pupils she has taught.

“The children will definitely miss her, and I wish her all the best in her retirement.”
