Tomorrow we farewell a long-standing staff member, Heather Tootill. Heather began her teaching here fifteen years ago and has taken on many roles, mainly as classroom teacher but also P.E. specialist teacher, ELL tutor, reading recovery teacher and in the many other contributions she has made to the learning of our children at St Mary’s.

Heather and her husband David are moving to Ohope Beach and there Heather will be relieving in schools, so it is not quite retirement yet. Heather, we wish you and David all the best in your move to the beach and hope that you have a wonderful time there. Thanks for the huge contribution you have made to St Mary’s over the years.
