Sadly, we will be saying goodbye to Mrs Constantina Markides on the 3rd of December. Mrs Markides joined us last year as the Safeguarding and Intervention Officer and has really loved working here at DKH. She leaves with a heavy heart (I have many wet tissues to prove it) as her husband has been offered a job in Bahrain so she will be moving there with him just before Christmas. This is a great opportunity for him and an exciting time for them both; we wish them all the very best with this new adventure.
We are delighted that Mr James Komeh will be joining us in the role of Safeguarding and Intervention Officer on the 21st of November. Mr Komeh has extensive experience working in social care, mental health, mentoring and supporting children and young adults and is very much looking forward to becoming part of the DKH team.
You will have noticed that Mrs Stafford has been absent over the past few weeks. She has had to undergo a complex heart bypass operation and will be convalescing at home over the next few months. We are incredibly glad Mrs Stafford is on the mend and that the surgery was a success, we wish her a speedy recovery and look forward to her return. We have been fortunate enough to get Ms Jenah Francis to help cover Mrs Stafford’s absence for the term and welcome her to DKH.
We would also like to welcome two apprentice teaching assistants to DKH, Mr Owen Stutely and Mr Ben Atkins joined us this week and will be here for the rest of the year training to become teaching assistants. They will be based in year 5 and 6 and will support learning in both of these year groups.
