Sixteen members of staff at Saltus Grammar School have been recognised for their long service.

One teacher has been at the school for 40 years, and two others for 20 years each.

Head of School Deryn Lavell said: “Having this kind of experience and knowledge is vitally important for a school and we are very lucky to have so many excellent members of staff that are clearly very committed to Saltus.”

Deputy head Jon Beard, who has been at the school for 40 years, said: “I know it might sound a bit cliched, but I have genuinely enjoyed every day. There are so many memories, so many students who have excelled and so many positive changes at the school.

“From the building of the sports facilities in the late 1970s including a gym and a pool, to our latest projects there has been so much that has gone on that is so positive for Saltus, and for Bermuda.

“I started my career as a PE teacher, then ran the SGY [university prep] programme, and now into my present role. The constant has been terrific students, and a great staff.

“They make it a pleasure to come to work. The real bonus is seeing how successful our students become, and seeing alumni contributing to the community.”

Sheridan Ming, the school carpenter, and Sharon Simmons, in the Primary department, have both been with the school for 20 years, Kelly Holmes, Jennifer Pettit and Kelly Reeves for 15 years, and Steven Masters and Karen Lusher for 11 years.

Erika Powell, Brittany Adams and Sara Lewter have notched up ten years and Brandon White, Becky Jones, Trista Riihiluoma, Lisa Outerbridge and Catherine Carreiro five years.
