Dear Families, Friends, Students and Staff
Welcome to my last edition of the Canbury School Newsletter. Did I really just type that?! As is customary for the last day of the school year, it's a mainly pictorial one. However, I couldn't let this edition wing its way into your in-boxes without a few words......
It has been a strange week with lots of ‘lasts’ for me. Final meetings with parents, a final hug from Mr Chase, the last Talent Show, last Sports Day, last Garden Party and finally, my last ever Prize Giving with you.
I have received so many lovely cards and letters from students, parents and staff that I really thought my heart would break from reading them all. Thank you to everyone for the time and thought that went into every kind word.
To my students, if you don’t already know it, and I think I have told you all so many times, you are all the most wonderful young people I have ever worked with.
You have lifted my heart every day with your sense of fun, your kindness, your resilience and your determination to overcome differences to become the amazing, talented young people who I know and love very much.
I want you to always remember that when you feel you can’t, you’ll have a memory of me saying, “you can, maybe not today but eventually you will” and know that I will forever be hugely proud of you all and your achievements.
Canbury has a certain inexplicable kind of magic in it and I instantly fell under its spell when I first walked through the door. The magic is simply that Canbury loves its children and enables them to be the very best version of themselves thanks to all the staff who teach and support them.
I have loved every second being Headmistress of Canbury School, through all the good times and even through these more recent challenging ones. These last seven years have been the best adventure of my career and it has been a privilege and a pleasure to have spent them with you.
Students of the week
All of you. Each and every one.
