Although a time for celebration, the end of a year is sadly all too often a time for saying farewell and as we bid Mr Dunlop, Miss Bibby, Mr Presnell, Mrs Brewer, Mrs Flynn, Mr Emus and Mr Maslin goodbye, it is with immense gratitude that we recognise their combined, and astonishing, 156 years of dedicated service to the school. Their commitment and unwavering loyalty to The New Beacon is quite exceptional and I know you will want to join me in wishing them every happiness in the future.

Mrs Brownsdon
