In today’s Assembly, the whole school came together to say goodbye and thank you to the Rev. Canon David Osman.
David has been a friend of our school for 20 years and has been a well respected and important part of our School community, whether working with our foundation children or welcoming children to his church as part of the RE curriculum. His fortnightly Assemblies have always been a big favourite, captivating the children and staff with his story telling and music.
We are very grateful for David’s tireless work developing the links between St John’s Church, Hebburn and our school and for allowing the use of the church for Christmas and Harvest performances.
During today’s Assembly, the children presented a memories book and shared some of their thoughts about David. Matthew in Year 2 wrote ‘Farewell David hope you have great time being retired we liked your singing. We liked when you used us as assistants, we wish you good luck .We had fantastic moments and memories with you.’ Illisa in Year 5 said. ‘We will miss you loads. We will especially miss your songs and your humour.’
To end the Assembly the Choir even gave a sneak preview of their upcoming South Tyneside Music Festival performance, ‘You’ve got a friend’.
Good luck and best wishes in your new adventure David and thank you from everyone at Toner Avenue.
