Now here’s a teacher who deserves a special mention! A special assembly and afternoon tea were held for a much-loved nursery teacher who retired after 42 years in David Livingstone Memorial Primary School.
On Tuesday, June 25, 2018, David Livingstone Memorial Primary School staff and pupils marked the retirement of Moira Monk with a whole school send-off followed by a cream tea for parents and friends.
Mrs Monk was a former pupil of the school. She began her teaching career in 1974 and returned to David Livingstone Memorial Primary as a teacher in 1976. She taught across all stages before making a permanent move to the nursery.
She said: “I have enjoyed teaching at the school. In the more recent years, as the nursery teacher, I have had the privilege of welcoming back some of our former pupils with their own children. I will miss the school greatly but look forward to spending time with family and friends and travelling to some new places.”
Staff, parents and pupils would like to thank Mrs Monk for all of her hard work over the years and wish her a long and happy retirement.
Headteacher Linda Callender said: “Mrs Monk is a kind, caring and well-respected teacher who has always had the children’s best interests at heart. She has educated, inspired and nurtured thousands of children during her teaching career and she will be greatly missed by all of us.”
