The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY LIFE - BY JAY GRENBY

TRIBUTES FROM Gor­don Brown and Ed Balls to Wolf­son Hil­lel Pri­mary head Sharon Mar­go­lis were read out at a re­tire­ment lunch for Mrs Mar­go­lis, who has left the South­gate school af­ter 15 years.

Prais­ing the com­mit­ment and vi­sion of Mrs Mar­go­lis, Mr Brown wrote that “at Wolf­son-Hil­lel, you have built up a great school”. In his mes­sage, Mr Balls, the Ed­u­ca­tion Sec­re­tary, noted that “the ex­cel­lent fa­cil­i­ties and repu- tation the school now en­joys is due to your lead­er­ship skills”.

He fur­ther com­mended her for “pro­vid­ing a safe, sup­port­ive and vi­brant learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence”. The 120 lunch guests in­cluded cur­rent and past staff and gov­er­nors and other Jewish ed­u­ca­tional rep­re­sen­ta­tives.

Mrs Mar­go­lis plans to make aliyah to spend more time with her chil­dren and grand­chil­dren, who live in Is­rael.

Lindy Grant will be act­ing head un­til Ja­son Marantz takes charge in Septem­ber.
