Dearest Jenny
I’m finally getting round to all my thank you things after 27 years of serving Christ the
King School! You were such a big part in shaping my leadership skills and style. I’ve used
some of my closing assembly to try to capture my love and thanks to you for being a
great friend & an inspirational colleague! Your sense of fun and gift of laughter will
stay with me always!
I send you great blessings in the name of the
Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
I give thanks for the times we gathered together to try to
make the world a better place for children and adults!
It’s a real joy to have some time to think and to pray for you, to remember the good times
that we have shared through all the joys and sorrows of life!

Your gifts of humanity and humility inspire all who meet you. You give us confidence to keep the
golden rules and to take responsibility for our own happiness and success.

Well done for the times that you listened well and acted sensibly. Thank you for
remembering that everyone has the right to be heard and to have an opinion

“Let the love of God shine through us by smiling and being gentle!”
This is the motto written by the children several years ago. It sums up the impact of
the Golden Rules in their lives. Thank you!
Well my dearest Jenny, today is a time for memories and also for looking forward. I’m not sure
what I will do next but I’m taking some time out to enjoy a little bit of freedom. So life will
continue to the full now that I’ve grown up enough to leave school!!
So my good friend I wish you every blessing for the future. I hope our paths will cross and
we can share some hugs & laughter. You are a special person and I am truly blessed to have
shared a long and happy friendship with you! Much love today & always: Rita
