GOODBYE MRS LIDDLE - DECEMBER 2017
Mrs Liddle spoke to Cecilia, Ruby O and Ruby T from Year 6. They asked her some questions and the following piece was written by the children:-
Mrs Terena Liddle has been working at Carnarvon Primary School for 18 years as a Teaching Assistant and is now sadly retiring. Even though she will miss us so much she will have a very exciting time, due to the fact she and her husband are taking up Scottish dancing. She has actually been dancing for 8 years.
She will look forward to spending more time with her family, especially her grandchildren. Mrs Liddle has loved her time here and will miss the children and staff the most. She has loved watching the children learn. She especially loves it when they have a ‘lightbulb’ moment.
What she has loved most about Carnarvon is everyone helping everyone else. She has worked with Mrs Marriott the longest and has loved working with her and will miss her time in the Year 6 team with both Mr Hall and Mrs Marriott.
She says she and Mrs Niebylski have had a good laugh making props for all of our plays together.
On a scale of 1-10 on how much she will miss Carnarvon? She said 15!
We will miss you so much Mrs Liddle. Good luck and thanks for all you have done for Carnarvon. Xx
