School bids farewell to popular teacher

A MUCH-LOVED teacher has retired after 13 years at Tickenham Primary School.

Daphne Harris predominantly taught years three and four during her time at the Clevedon Road school and also worked as a mentor for newly-qualified teachers.

She was also responsible for organising the school’s swimming lessons and annual swimming galas.

The 60-year-old from Weston-in-Gordano retired at the end of the autumn term and now hopes to go on to volunteer at the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust at Slimbridge as well as spend time sailing with her husband.

Headteacher Dean Hudd said: “Mrs Harris has been a valued member of staff at Tickenham for 13 years and has seen many changes in the pupils, staff and buildings.
