Happy Retirement Mrs Glover: Parents Tea Party

After 7 years as Headmistress at Kingswells Primary School, Mrs Glover is paying the school a sad farewell at the end of this school term.  To start off her retirement, she is planning a lovely holiday in South America and then spending some well-earned time in her garden.

The parents who appreciate all that she has done over the last 7 years got together to buy some gifts and to give Mrs Glover a send off she would appreciate.

When she arrived, she was completely surprised to see parents sitting waiting to chat.

There were several gifts for Mrs Glover and how she didn’t find out about it is a mystery as most of the children in school knew about the tea party and that there would be gifts.

Gifts from parents were a weekend break at Ballathie House in Perthshire, a set of pewter Aberdeen coasters with an additional Kingswells Primary one added to the set, champagne and champagne flutes.

A lovely bench for her garden was inscribed with:

“Thanks for inspiring us to be more than we thought we could be.”
