Farewell Mrs Slack


Today, 14th July 2011, Mrs Slack retires as Head teacher of St. Philip’s RC. There have been many presentations, presents and speeches (and a few tears!). The following short film has been made by Class 10, Mr Cooper’s class. We hope it goes someway to documenting Mrs Slack’s time at St. Philip’s RC.

  4. What a beautiful tribute to you Sandra, Mrs Boardman had me in tears!! You must be very proud! I know you will look back in fondness at St Philips and you will be much missed. Good luck for the future, I am sure we will see you often xxx

  5. An extremely moving and poignant tribute to Mrs Slack.
    The video was beautifully constructed involving all the children and I am sure Mrs Slack will watch it with pride in her heart knowing that the success and happiness of the children of St Philip’s past and present, is due to the vocation to her job and her love of the school and the children.
    Mrs Slack is an inspiration to the pupils and also the parents. We thank her for everything she has done.

  6. What a fantastic video and tribute. A massive well done to Mr Cooper and all his helpers.

    On a personal level, Mrs Slack you were an amazing Headteacher, an inspirational role model and a lovely lovely person. The foundations of a person are laid at an early age they say, well what better foundations could I have had., I thank you from the bottom of my heart for making primary school one of the happiest times of my life and I am so delighted that my son Jack is now experiencing the magic of this school, like I did. You will be missed but you could not have left the school is more capable hands than those of Mr Barrett.

    You have put your heart and soul into St Philip’s for the last 19 and a half years and so my family and I wish you all the very best for your retirement.

    Love and best wishes,
    Lindsey & Jack McGIllivray
