School prin­ci­pal was a true ed­u­ca­tor

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Points Of View -

My hus­band and I were sad­dened to read in the pa­per last week of the death of Derek Adam. Our daugh­ter, Kather­ine Des­jardins, was lucky enough to have at­tended Home­wood School dur­ing his time as prin­ci­pal. She found him to be fair, en­cour­ag­ing and ap­proach­able. We, as par­ents, were al­ways im­pressed by his ob­vi­ous ded­i­ca­tion and com­mit­ment to his school and his warm and en­gag­ing at­ti­tude to par­ents and stu­dents alike.

He was a true ed­u­ca­tor and I wish all schools could have a per­son of his cal­i­bre to lead them. We send our deep­est con­do­lences to his fam­ily and loved ones. Sally Des­jardins Ash­ford
