Celebrating our long serving staff
On Friday 26 March we celebrated our long serving staff, past and present, at our Years of Service Cocktail Party.
In our 175th year as a school, we invited back all previous long serving staff for the unveiling of plaques, placed in the Bell Tower outside of the Senior School, featuring their names. It was great to see so many of our past staff members catching up and reminiscing on their fond memories of their time at Hutchins – a wonderful way to kick-off our 175th anniversary celebrations!
We were also pleased to acknowledge six current members of Hutchins staff for 15 or 20 years of service to the School:
- Mr Anthony Apted, 15 years
- Mrs Jane Heazlewood, 15 years
- Mr Ivor Leonard, 15 years
- Mrs Karen Donohoe, 20 years
- Mr Scott Marriott, 20 years
- Mr Denis Bishop, 22 years
As a mark of gratitude and acknowledgement to each of them, framed certificates and a specially struck service medal were presented by Mr Gene Phair (’87), Chairperson of The Hutchins School Board and Headmaster, Dr Rob McEwan, to these staff members. These men and women have shaped the potential and the education outcomes of thousands of boys and young men. It is to them, who for so long and consistently have given their care and professional skills, that we give thanks.
