Special assembly marks 25-years for Falmouth school staff member
2:00pm Saturday 23rd February 2013 in Falmouth/Penryn
When Marie Sharp took a job at King Charles School in Falmouth it was only supposed to be temporary, but last week she was called into assembly under false pretences and presented with gifts to mark her 25th anniversary.
The school’s business manager was shocked and slightly embarrassed to be the centre of attention. Headteacher, Heather Taylor, told the children: “Today is a really special day and a special assembly for Mrs Sharp.
“When I first came to this school, Mrs Sharp was the very first person that spoke to me. I wanted to make it a really special assembly today, it is an amazing achievement.”
Mrs Sharp said: “It has been an absolute honour to work at this school and to have been here for this length of time – it has just gone so quickly. It was only going to be temporary while the children were at school, but I have loved it.
“It’s all down to the children and the lovely staff that I have stayed here so long. Their wonderful smiling faces make everything worthwhile.”
Mrs Sharp is married to Mike, who works at Falmouth Docks, and the pair have two children, Peter and Matthew, and two grandchildren, Isabella and Arthur.
