Jo Dixon

Jo is the most incredible teacher! She has the most outrageous, hilarious, wonderful and caring character that just draws the kids to her. She’s one of those teachers that has a story for EVERYTHING and there is no such thing as a dull moment in her classroom! Animated stories are always brought home, so we, the parents, hear about them too. The kids admire, respect her and the anticipation is high when the end of the year list comes out as to who will have her the following year.

Lynn Murfet

Lynn is definitely the only teacher who has gone above and beyond for her students during the lockdown. She called each individual student to check on and messages them ensuring she is keeping in contact with them all year. Lynn has put her students first, treating her students like her children and she definitely deserves a little recognition for all the hard work she puts into our classes setting her students up for their future employment.
