Farewell to Nicola – 19 July 2017

In a tearful but happy occasion, the children, parents and friends of Rosedale Community Primary School said farewell to their much loved head teacher, Nicola Johnson. Nicola first came to Rosedale School in January 1991, taking over as head teacher from Diane Hughes. Then the school had 29 pupils. Now it has 22 in total with the number rising again and the fact that the school has survived at all is very largely down to the efforts of Nicola, as the chairman of the governors, Anthony Davies observed in his address.
