Monday the 18th December was both a happy day and a sad day for RSB. We were sad that one of our teachers was leaving but happy knowing that he was leaving to enjoy a well-earned though early retirement.
We marked the occasion by having a special assembly led by Headmaster Paul Boulton. Our whole school gathered along with Staff past and present and wished Nick well presenting him with gifts to remember us all by.
Pupils made and presented some cards, which we know meant such a lot to Nick. Bob recalled some ‘incidents’ from throughout Nick’s career, followed by a slide show of photos prepared by Paul from Nick’s 16 years at our school.
Finally, everyone ‘retired’ to a buffet in our food tech room where parents presented Nick with retirement gifts making the occasion a wonderful ‘family’ celebration. We wish him well and hope he won’t be a stranger and keep in touch.
