Emotional Goodbye for Mrs Gordon at Tea Party
The children and staff had a tea party this morning to say goodbye to Mrs Gordon.
It started with a quiz of clues about the children that Mrs Gordon had to guess. She had to get 30 points to get her tea and cakes, 40 for "service with a smile". Mrs Gordon got very competitive with this and was delighted to score 53 points.
Children then shared their memories of Mrs Gordon. Some of these were real tear-jerkers but others got a laugh, including when she karate kicked the dolls in the dolls' house (to demonstrate how NOT to treat them), when she crashed into the tarmac after being accidentally tripped over by Euan at Athletics club ("Well, at least you'll always have the scar to remember me by" he said) and the time she apparently said when settling a playground dispute between two boys "Look, I'm the only one who kills people round here."
After cakes, crisps and juice there was a slideshow of photos from the school and Drama Club plays since 2011 followed by a Powerpoint presentation of photos of Mrs Gordon over the years to the track "I'm On My Way" by the Proclaimers. Finally, she was presented with a signed sweatshirt and a Learning Jotter including photos of all the children and their memories and thoughts about her time at Aberuthven.
Mrs Gordon thanked children and staff for the wonderful send-off and said she would never forget them.
