January & February 2018 Bulletin

Unfortunately, I have to begin this edition of the bulletin with some very sad news. Over the half-term break, our Art Technician Mrs Laudy passed away following a very short illness. Mrs Laudy had worked at the college since 2004 and was extremely popular with both her colleagues and the pupils. She was a former ballerina and a prestigious artist in her own right, who used her skills and talent to support the pupils. Although, she could have retired, Mrs Laudy chose to keep working as she loved being amongst the pupils and members of staff and making a difference on a daily basis. We will all miss her very much and send our condolences to her husband, Vaughan, and her two sons.
