Newsletter 21.12.12

 High Beeches Primary School Newsletter 21.12.12

What busy week we have had! The children have enjoyed a number of festive treats this week including our trip to the Pantomime and our School Christmas Lunch. KS2 performed beautifully in the Carol Concert last night and thanks to Mrs Hadley for organising this.


This week, however, has been tinged with sadness for us all at High Beeches. Today we have bid a fond farewell to Mrs Brannon after nearly 25 years of service to our school. She has always been an integral and highly-valued member of our school team who will be sorely missed. Mrs Brannon has worked with all the Headteachers since the school began and has seen many changes. We know she is planning to visit us regularly and look forward to hearing all about her retirement plans. On behalf of the whole school, Mrs Brannon, we thank you for all your hard work and service to the school and wish you a very Happy Retirement. We will miss you!


Well done to the Learners of the Week, we are very proud of you all.
