Remarkable Colleagues award

Yesterday afternoon saw the award tea party for the first Julian Crampton “Remarkable Colleagues” award.  I know that all our staff are remarkable in some way but some are even more remarkable than others.  I am sure that you will all join me in congratulating our very remarkable Becky Farmer (Deputy School Admin Manager) who was successfully nominated by 6 people for an award.  It really was a pleasure to attend the event to support Becky – who I know was dying quietly inside.  A very well deserved recognition of the work and extra efforts from one of our colleagues who makes a daily contribution to making the job so much easier.

Well done Becky and many congratulations from everyone in SASS.
