Messages of thanks and appreciation were shared during a special assembly to mark the retirement of a long standing member of the school community, Canon Janet Eastwood, Rector of Holy Trinity church.
During 23 years of service Janet has given much pastoral care and support to the school in guidance and during challenging times. She has supported five headteachers and over two-thousand students! There were readings of encouragement during the assembly, a beautiful rendition of Amazing Grace, performed by five of our talented singers, one of Janet’s favourite hymns. The final reading was from 1 Corinthians 13 verses 1-13, Paul’s great passage on love, containing ‘love always protects, always trusts, always hopes and always perseveres’, actions that Janet has performed in abundance during her service to the school.
We thank Janet very much indeed for her faithful and long service to the Blue Coat School and wish her a relaxing and enjoyable retirement.
