Recently we welcomed back many former members of Copthill staff to celebrate a Golden Anniversary Coffee Morning, hosted by Mrs Teesdale Snr. They were entertained by the children of Lower School and Upper School, who sang beautifully and proudly, and then they were offered tours of our school by Year 6 guides.
It is our Year 6 children who know our school best and I am always proud when visitors comment on the genuine warmth of their feelings and the loyalty they show when they talk about their school.
Copthill School is a very different place to the one in which many of Mrs Teesdale Snr’s former colleagues worked, but it is the children who are the heartbeat of a school and I hope that, in another 50 years’ time, the Copthill children of today smile when they think back to their time here just as our visitors did last week.
As always, many memories have been made this term and I hope they are fittingly encapsulated in this review.
Enjoy looking back over Spring Term 2019.
Mrs Helen Schofield
