Dear Parents, Carers, and Families,
Good afternoon and we hope this finds you well. We are writing to share updates on two valued members of the Swiss Team that will be moving on at the end of this term.
Christine Hodder will be retiring at the end of this term after 22 years at Swiss Cottage School. Chrissy joined Swiss Cottage School in 1998 as a Teaching Assistant and qualified as a teacher in 2012. Chrissy leads the Horticulture curriculum across the school provision and supported the provision that was developed with local allotments. She has also worked with local horticultural organisations for work experience opportunities for the Upper School.
Stephen Barnett will be moving to Japan to work at an International School at the end of this term after 9 years at Swiss Cottage School. Steve joined us in 2011 as a Teaching Assistant and progressed to Higher Level Teaching Assistant for Music. Steve leads specialist music lessons across the school and has supported the partnership that was developed with the Camden Music Service and Worshipful Company of Musicians.
The COVID-19 pandemic impacts the way we usually share our farewell wishes as a community with colleagues that begin new chapters. Please send any cards or messages for Chrissy and Steve to the school so that we can add this to a book we are creating. This can go to firstname.lastname@example.org or in your child’s school bag by Wednesday, 16th December 2020. We will then share this with them on their final day on 18th December 2020.
Thank you and we wish you the best for the rest of the week.
