Finance & Admin Assistant Mrs Ruth Shepherd retired after 12 years at BRGS.

Mr Elkington, Director of Sixth Form gave a presentation to mark the occasion of Ruth’s retirement.

Ruth joined BRGS as Finance & Admin Assistant in December 1999 and has given over 12 years of dedicated and unselfish service to BRGS. Mr Elkington spoke of her work and compassion for the needs of staff, and the trust felt by staff when needing to confide in her. He also spoke of her loyalty, and the admiration by staff for her, and also her ability to step up to the mark when needed.

David King, Chair of Governors and Peter Terry, Governor – Chair of Finance Committee, also expressed their thanks for Ruth’s dedicated work.

Ruth has an exciting time ahead, off to Egypt and then to Israel. We wish Ruth a safe, happy and exciting time during the next stage of life’s journey. We shall miss Ruth enormously, with that wicked sense of humour and the care and prayer with which she has surrounded her work.
