Today we have been celebrating Miss Andrea Shannon’s 50th year of teaching at Our Lady Catholic School in Hitchin.  She joined us in September 1971 as an NQT and has taught not only the parents of our pupils but also some of the teachers!

The Executive Head Teacher, Mrs Nicholson held a touching assembly this morning to mark this special event and to say thank you for her loyalty and hard work over the years.

Some quotes from colleagues and pupils are below:

“Congratulations on your great achievement of 50 years teaching at our school.  You have inspired so many generations.  You are so kind, caring and always there to help students and staff.  Nothing is ever too much for you”.
