Friday Bulletin & Diary Dates – 14th June 2019

14 June 2019

Dear Parents and Carers,

It has been a week of mixed emotions at Kells Lane. As many of you know, the children and staff have been coming to terms with the passing of our dear friend and colleague Mrs Le Marquand.

Mrs Le Marquand worked at Kells Lane for 21 years. Over that time, she developed a strong bond with staff and children because of her warmth, generosity and kindness. Mrs Le Marquand thoroughly enjoyed spending time with the children. She had a great sense of humour and the children thought she was incredibly kind and great fun to be with. Mrs Le Marquand will be a huge miss at Kells Lane. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family at this very sad time.


Yours sincerely,

Mrs A Whistler
