Friday marked a bittersweet day in the history of Port Shepstone High School as we waved goodbye to Sue Rawlins, as she enters her well-deserved retirement years.
Sue is one of the finest educators this institution has had the privilege of being associated with, but she is also one of the kindest and most generous human beings.
Her grace and humour are always evident and her passion for teaching is infectious. Sue started her teaching career in January 1979 at Suid Natal High School, as an English FAL teacher.
Luckily for Port Shepstone High School, we were able to ‘steal’ her over to our side to assist with English HL and FAL in January 2002, and it has been a wonderful journey ever since.
Sheppie High has not only benefitted from Sue’s English expertise, but she has also made her mark on many learners whilst coaching swimming and being involved with TADA and our active Eco-Club.
Happy retirement Mrs Rawlins – you will be sorely missed, but it is your time to rest now… In the inimitable words of Winnie the Pooh, “How lucky are we to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.”
