Staff mark the end of an era at Break­s­pear School

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

A SCHOOL in Ick­en­ham has bid farewell to its much loved deputy head and 15 other staff as it marked the ‘end of an era’ this month.

The Break­s­pear School in Bushey Road said good­bye to Lynne Sum­ner, who has been at the school for 11 years, and other teach­ers and sup­port staff, who have 129 years com­bined ser­vice be­tween them. Four staff are thought to have taken re­dun­dancy and oth­ers like Mrs Sum­ner left through re­tire­ment or for new chal­lenges.

Chil­dren sang songs and danced and mem­bers of the RAF Band played My Way at a farewell pic­nic for Mrs Sum­ner.

Af­ter­wards she wrote: “The sun shone and ev­ery­one was able to en­joy the pic­nic on the field. The at­mos­phere was so friendly, affectionate and full of good will and joy. A beau­ti­ful ex­pe­ri­ence and mem­ory for the 11 years I have been at Break­s­pear.”

Mrs Sum­ner was head of the old Break­s­pear In­fant and Nurs­ery School be­fore be­com­ing deputy of the amal­ga­mated Break­s­pear pri­mary school.
