Colette says farewell to her days in Ballapousta

Ballapousta NS celebrated Mrs Colette Green's teaching career and retirement with a special day of celebration last Friday.

She has been a teacher in Ballapousta since September 1982 and she has fulfilled many roles during that time: classroom teacher, Acting Principal, Deputy Principal and Learning Support teacher, leaving her footprint in each of those areas.

'She was a very dedicated and talented teacher and she always brought a wealth of knowledge, creativity and fun to her teaching,' Peter Dooley stated. 'Mrs Green had a special relationship with the students and her caring and considerate nature were always to the forefront.'

Her retirement was marked with a special mass, celebrated by Fr O'Leary. The children brought up gifts which represented Mrs Green's teaching career in Ballapousta.

After the mass, the Board of Management and Parents' Association made a presentation to her followed by refreshments being served in the school hall.

'Staff, parents and pupils wish her every best health and happiness in her retirement,' Mr Dooley added.
