Farewell to Mrs Jenny Radmore
Mrs Jenny Radmore joined Cornwall Hill College in October of 1997 as a pioneer member of staff, specifically appointed as a Grade 1 teacher. In 1998, Mrs Radmore was given the responsibility of heading the Junior Preparatory Phase, a position she has held until August 2015. Her teaching career spans 40 years.
Who will ever forget the thoughtful and lively assemblies which Jenny presented to the Preparatory School? Every child and family was known and welcomed by name. The ability to discipline children effectively and to gain 100% attention from audiences is one of Jenny’s many strengths.
All of the matric pupils who had been taught by Mrs Radmore in their Grade 1 enjoyed her spiritedness in participating with them in the annual Polar Bear Swim in their matric year.
The Radmore children, Caitlin and Jack-Vincent, also attended Cornwall Hill College, and are now both professionally qualified young people of whom we are very proud. Caitlin followed in her mother’s footsteps and qualified as an educator. She now lives in New Zealand. Jack has obtained a Master’s Degree and resides in Cape Town. He is due to be married soon.
All the bi-annual Preparatory School concerts featured Mrs Radmore, who was always keen to get involved and do her part.
Meeting up with past pupils all over the world – who recognise her and greet her enthusiastically – has been a source of enormous pleasure for Jenny.
During the past two years, Jenny, with us, has been preparing for her retirement at the end of 2015; however, enormous personal blessings have come to Jenny and her husband, Keith. Doors have opened for both of them to bid farewell to the Irene community and start a new chapter in their lives. This has unexpectedly, yet excitedly for the Radmore family, brought her retirement date forward.
Cornwall Hill College pupils and parents, both past and present, will be able to note messages of appreciation to be written in a special book which will be available at Reception. This book, together with one prepared by current Preparatory School pupils and staff, will be treasured by Jenny as she relocates to the Cape.
Mrs Jenny Radmore has left a legacy for many pupils, parents and colleagues. There will be a tremendous sense of loss, yet a huge sense of pride that we have had the privilege of experiencing a special person like Jenny Radmore, both as a person and a phenomenal educator. On behalf of the Cornwall Hill College family, we wish her well in her new endeavours.
