Friday, 28 March 2014, not only marked the end of the first term, but the end of an era…as we bid a sad farewell to Mrs Hilda Philander, who has decided to go on early retirement.
Having started her career as an educator at Surrey, 36 years and three months ago, she is officially its longest serving educator, and with her no-nonsense teaching style, mischievous smile and stilettoes, she has indeed left a lasting impression.
Mrs Philander…the void you will leave will be difficult to fill.
We wish you all the very best with your retirement. May the Almighty preserve your health and give you the opportunity now to do all the things you did not have the time for.
