A painting of the school is given to Mr Mallon

IMG 2110

 

This week Mr Mallon received a very unexpected and wonderful gift from a lady called Christina May. The gift is a painting of our school, and with it was a card from Christina. Her mother taught at St Michael's Woolmer Green from 1971 until July 1991. The painting was painted by a relative of the Head Teacher at the time and was presented to Jean Harvey (Christina's mother) on her retirement. Now all we have to do is find a suitable place in the school to hang it. For more details of this lovely story, and to see the card that Christina sent, please see "The History of St Michael's" page of this website.
