Last term Wilma retired. Wilma was our longest member of staff we have ever had. She was here for 16 years but luckily she is still coming in to help out from time to time. Throughout her 16 years of working here she has helped us to read and write, sing and dance and knit.For Wilma leaving we made up a song to sing and we made up a book of memories. Wilma has taught most of Yell how to knit as she is the knitting master. Wilma is in all our dream teams (ideal staff) and she still will be even though she’s gone.
Here are some comments from the pupils…
Wilma helps us when we are stuck.
Wilma is helpful.
Wilma is a legend!
here are the song lyrics tune ( if your happy and you know it)
Wilma thank you for everything you’ve done.
You’ve worked hard and made learning fun
You’ve knitted, baked and dug to give us the learning bug
We will miss you dream team Wilma – No. 1
There is nobody else quite like you
Our graduation books – you’ve made a few
Coffee mornings, concerts, shows
The garden – barrows, spades and hoes
We’ve been hard work but you’ve pulled through
There was class moves and motor group for skills
There was earthquake days and treks over the hills
Memories over the years
Now we hope they’re happy tears
As you remember all the laughs and funs and thrills.
We have learned to stay calm and have fun
We know to stay the course until the work is done
From all the boys and lasses we will miss ‘Where’s my glasses?’
All the best dream team Wilma No.1
From the best school in the world Cullivoe
Wilma this is your last and final show
Come on up and take a bow and we will tell you how
Much we love you and we’ll miss you when you go.
