Thought from Fr. Colm - 12th July

Can I safely say that the teachers will be winding down now? I certainly can say that two head teachers are winding down permanently. Mr. Campbell retires from St. Leonard's and Mrs. Clarke retires from her role as head of the Federation of schools that is St. Thomas More and St. Joseph's. Mr. Campbell has been a great servant of the children from all over the Durham area. His pastoral care has been one of his great qualities. I will be speaking more on this in due course. Mrs. Clarke is retiring for health reasons, and we wish her a very quick return to full health.
