Celebrating Mrs McWeeny’s Retirement

This week Early Years and KS 1 have been celebrating Mrs Mcweeny’s long career in teaching and her 10 years at St Lawrence’s. She has been much loved by staff and children alike and will be missed greatly but we wish her a happy and healthy retirement.

She will always be a part of our St Lawrence’s family.

Good Luck in your retirement Mrs McWeeny!

Queen for a Day!

What a fabulous day, fit for a Queen!!!! Happy Retirement Queen Queenie!
