Christine Retires

On Tuesday 20th December, staff and pupils of Haddenham St Mary's School bid a very fond farewell to Christine Broughton, who is retiring from her teaching assistant role after over twenty years of service. Here is a tribute from Head Teacher, Mrs Karen Collett.

Today marks a significant event in the life of Haddenham St Mary's School, as Mrs Broughton retires. She has endless energy and brings 'sunshine' into the school as soon as she comes in each week. She has worked with thousands of children over the years from generation to generation.

The care, love and attention that Mrs Broughton gives the children has never shown any limits.

No Job is too small for Mrs Broughton and the staff are particularly going to miss her. Who is going to clean out the guinea pigs now?!

Mrs Broughton entertains us all, makes us laugh and generally spreads cheerfulness across the school.

Christine is off to visit her daughter in Miami first of all when she retires but she has promised to come back to Haddenham St Mary's and help us out when we need her.

The thing is, little does she know that we're going to miss her so much — we'll want her back every week!

Note from the Editor:
Christine Broughton was presented with flowers at the end of the Haddenham St Mary's School nativity service held at the church on Tuesday morning. You can see photographs of the nativity service in our Galleries section.
