Irene - may you have the retirement you have been planning - we know you will be kept very busy socialising and enjoying family, friends, new and old hobbies - ENJOY!
The celebrity herself:
Well today is Irene Harrison's last day working as a teacher at one of our primary schools. Irene taught 2 of my children and is a long serving member of staff, and well known in our community. It isn't unusual to find a few of the children who attend school nowadays are children or relatives of children Irene had previously taught at school over the years.
Irene had mentioned to myself and a couple of my friends [who regularly meet at school etc for fundraising and parent council stuff] that she had recently taken up horse riding. Suzanne [you know who you are LOL!] came up with the idea of the horseshoe seeing as she knew I had made one previously for a wedding this year. I had tried to incorporate the school colours of purple, silver and black. I managed to find gorgeous black ribbon with purple tartan, I spray painted the horse shoe silver and then dressed it up with some purple and silver embellishments and some bling!
Irene was delighted with the gift!
