Dear Parents and Carers,
Please see below some staff changes for your information.
After more than 25 years of teaching in Llanrhidian Primary, our Deputy Head Mrs Jones has decided to leave us for her next ventures. Mrs Jones has been a vital part of our school community and our pupils and staff have all benefited from her expertise, diligence and kindness. In addition to her excellent classroom practice, Mrs Jones was integral to our contribution as a pioneer school developing the new national curriculum for Wales. Mrs Jones will be much missed by children, families and all her colleagues here at Llanrhidian. I am sure that the whole school community will join myself and the governors of the school in thanking Mrs Jones for all she has given us, and in wishing her all the very best for the future.
For over 30 years Mrs Williams has supported hundreds and hundreds of pupils. I would imagine there are many parents reading this who have gone to Mrs Williams for her magic ice packs or plasters. Over the decades Mrs Williams has led on countless community events, shows, performances, including many amazing performances with the choir. More recently Mrs Williams has become an "online superstar" supporting home learning. Sadly Mrs Williams is hanging up her BBQ tongs, and heading off to France to be with her family. We will all miss her and thank her for all her years of dedication and kindness to pupils, staff and families.
And finally, Mr Dowsett is recovering well and ready to return to work on a phased return time basis up until the Easter holidays, and returning full time during the summer term. At this point we would like to thank Mrs Jordan who has been doing an excellent job covering for Mr Dowsett during his absence. We have all missed Mr Dowsett, and I know you will join us in welcoming him back to our school.
