1986 – 2016
On the first week of May 2016 we farewelled one of our most valued and highly regarded staff members. Pam Stewart has worked in the school office for 29 years, and many of you will know her as the person who fitted your son for his first blazer. However, Pam’s real skill was in remaining calm when she was presented with the 10th, 15th or even 20th draft of the School Prize List on the day of Prizegiving, or when the school magazine was due to the printers and one coach or teacher’s report was yet to be submitted. At these times, she would utter with absolute confidence, “Leave it with me”, eliminating all stress in four small words.
Those who gathered last week shared many stories and the speeches celebrated a very special woman who gave so much to the school. We wish Pam all the best as she retires to spend more time with her family.
