I shall be retiring from Latymer Upper School on 31 August this year - but as the term finishes this Friday (4 July) it seems fitting to have a few posts this week to say 'good-bye'. This photo shows the Prep School - Rivercourt House and Latymer House. I have much enjoyed teaching Religious Studies to the boys and girls aged 7-11 years.
Although the pupils in the Prep no doubt think I look at least 65, I am in fact only 55 years old, so this represents early retirement. I have taught for 33 years - 18 of these at Latymer. It may come as no surprise to readers of this blog that I am off to the Highlands of Scotland. I hope to move to a new house in Culloden, just outside Inverness in November. I hope to do more church work - but that of course will be up to the Bishop of Aberdeen.
However, one thing is sure - this blog will continue, but with a new name - 'Hills of the North, Rejoice!', (though I'll stick with the present name for the time being).
