There was also a presentation to long serving members of staff, Anne Jackson and Pam Connell, giving them masses of praise and thanks for all their hard work as well as wishing them the very best for their retirement at the end of this academic year. This day of celebration concluded with various activities such as a pub quiz, an afternoon at the races, board games and jigsaw puzzles.
