A teacher who is retiring after 33 years is holding a celebration of music to mark the occasion.

Pamela Newman, head of music at Carnforth High School, is inviting staff, friends and students past and present to the special musical event which will include guest performers.

Pamela, 58, who lives in Bare with her husband Ian and daughter Heather, said: “Some pupils have asked me which school am I going to next so that’s a good feeling! However, I’m just taking early retirement.

“I shall miss many aspects of the job but I won’t miss the preparation, marking, writing departmental policies to name a few.

“The highlights of my 33 years at the school include working with talented children who have gone on to teaching and performing, taking the choir and orchestra to perform in Germany in 1988 and performing to different audiences and seeing pupils develop into confident teenagers over their five years.

“I’m looking forward to spending more time with my husband as we prepare for our silver wedding anniversary next year. I will be returning to school in September as a teaching assistant to help younger pupils with their reading and writing.”

The concert takes place at the school on July 18, at 7pm and includes performances by Carnforth High pupils and staff along with a very tasty barbecue.

Tickets priced at £3.50 (with food) are available from the school office.
