750 Years of Service

Yesterday we celebrated the contribution of our longstanding staff in a Significant Service afternoon. Staff who had served the school for fifteen years or more were treated to a range of performances by the students: a haunting version of the school song by the Close Harmony choir, four songs from the recent sell out school musical 'We Will Rock You', and a public speaking performance on homelessness by a Year 11 student.

This was followed by a ceremony in which the staff's contribution and longevity were celebrated. Forty-eight staff have served the school for more than fifteen years with the longest serving member of staff being Julia Neal, a former History teacher of 38 years.

They were each given a celebratory mug and then Ms Neal openedĀ  the curtain on a new display cabinet in the Archive Corridor celebrating their significant service. This was followed by afternoon tea and a lot of catching up.

The combined service of the staff in the group photo is 750 years!

We'd really love to meet you...CLICK HERE to find out about our tour dates and open days
