Upcoming Retirements…

When people read today’s homework they will see that Mrs Harris and Mrs Earp are both retiring within the next couple of weeks. Mrs Harris will have her last day this Thursday (31st March) and Mrs Earp will leave at the end of term (8th April). It is amazing to think that Mrs Harris has been at this school for 27 years and Mrs Earp for 41 years!!! Most children in the school have been in Nursery so they know Mrs Earp – and every child who has had a school dinner or who has been to a school disco knows Mrs Harris.

I think it would be lovely for Mrs Harris, who is going to France, and Mrs Earp, who is going to Japan, to be able to read the school blog and be able to see how grateful we are to them. Please write something nice about how they have helped you and then for years to come the comments will still be on our blog and both Mrs Earp and Mrs Harris will be able to remind themselves of how much we miss them!

  15. Myself Lacey and my mum would like to thank mrs earp for all the help and encouragment she gave to us at the start of our school days.. We hope very much you have a long and happy retirement…you really are a lovely teacher.

  16. i think mrs harris is allowed to leave for being at school for many years and doing many activites like knitting,sewing,and making pomb poms in knitting club…

    i think mrs erp should be aloud to retire because she has been here as long as the school has been built and she has been in nursery sice she was 18…

  17. hi mr B
    mrs haris and mrs herp ar realy nice peppole and i would never want them to leave.

  18. It will be a sad day saying goodbye to Mrs Earp. She has taught Freya, chris and myself. She is the smiley face you see when walking along the school path and she always has the time to stop and ask how you are. Mrs Earp is one of the hidden gems at Ivanhoe and is full of joy and enthusiasm, she is one of the reasons why we chose Ivanhoe Nursery for Freya and Mrs Earp encouraged her all the way from day one. We all wish you the happiness you deserve and wish you well with anything you choose to do. Take care Mrs Earp, the Diack-Scott’s are going to miss you xxx

  19. Alex’s Mum

    Good luck on your retirement Mrs Earp!

  23. Hi everyone,Thank you all so much for the lovely message`s for me.I will miss you all, but shall come in to school on Friday afternoons to help Mrs Blower with the knitting, when I am in Conisbrough, if that will be alright with Mr Brian.The last 27years as gone really quickly and it as been a pleasure to work and look after you at dinner time. I hope in later years that my skills with knitting, maypole dancing and fund raising you are able to pass on to your own children.I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all those parents,children and staff who have help me with the fund raising Past and Present, we have shared and had lots of fun and raised lots of money for the school .Who ever takes this task on i wish them all the best and most of all enjoy it.Thank you all xx

  24. I really am enjoying looking at all your lovely comments. It is going to be a
    really sad day when I say goodbye to you all.
    Like you all who have good friends, mine is Mrs. Rowland and we will see
    each other quite often so she is going to tell me how you are all going on.
    Mr. Earp once said that if someone sliced me up I would have “Ivanhoe
    school” all the way through me, just like a stick of rock, and hes probably
    I want to wish you and all your families all the best for the future and the
    main thing is take care.
    Love Mrs. Earp xxxxxxx

  25. mrs earp, you are so awesome,when you go to Japan i will be on the same plane following you there. 🙂

  26. hii mr b

    i’m goingto be verry sad about mrs erp and miss aris they were so nice byyyyee 🙁

  27. Mrs Earp has been the best ever member of staff at Ivanhoe. She will be greatly missed by all. It will be a shame that new children starting after she has left will not get the chance to meet her and have the great experience myself, my husband Paul and my two children Jack and Atlanta have had having her as our nursey nurse. She is the main reason we sent our children to Ivanhoe as we knew with great confidence that they would be well looked after and feel safe in her care. Just as she made us two feel as children when we started school.Mrs Earp is the most gentle, caring person.we will be sooooo sorry to see her go.But i know she will enjoy retirement to fullest. ALL THE BEST FOR THE FUTURE!!!!!!!!!!!XX The Stevens family

  28. Dear Mrs Earp,
    I just want to thank you for all the reassurance you gave me when Regan was having trouble settling in at nursery. You really helped us and now Regan loves being at nursery. You will be certainly missed, and its such a shame Emily will not be able to be taught by you. I was sad not to be able to say goodbye, as Regan trapped his thumb on the way to nursery on your last day. Take care and Enjoy your retirement. X
