Mary was a force of nature and when walking the School halls, would command the respect of both staff and pupils.
Her affection for the School’s history, its traditions and her vision for its future were woven into the cultural fabric that decked the halls she so strongly strode down.
Mary never shied away from mucking in! Her Saturday Challenge lesson on London’s cholera outbreak in 1854 was a most excellent example of her teaching ability and love of the profession. Her supporting role in Simon’s drama lesson, where she would move between acting groups and immerse herself in their creativity, showed us she understood the importance of holistic approaches to learning.
She loved to boogie, to laugh and most of all, to encourage.
Simon, Fergus, she truly stamped her mark on this life.
