We said Goodbye and huge thanks to Mrs Joan Ormerod, our Science Faculty Manager, who has worked with us since 1975. But not just 33 years of organizing labs, equipment, chemicals (and teachers!) – another six on top of that as Mrs Ormerod was educated here as well! A lifetime of dedication to ensuring the best for the students of BRGS deserves our praise and gratitude – and deserves a rest.

We do hope that she has a wonderful retirement, though we know she won’t be away for long as Mrs Ormerod has been booked already to do some invigilation for us in the new year!
