Fond farewell to beloved principal
Imagine going to the South of France, and not just for a visit.
Our Principal, Maggie McCorkell, is going there with her husband at the end of July. She'll be living in a nice, warm and cosy village.
Mrs McCorkell has worked in Bermuda for 37 years and has been at Warwick Academy for 27 years. She has been an English teacher, geography teacher, a librarian, head of sixth form, senior mistress, deputy principal and principal.
She said her best memories of Warwick Academy are when she was head of sixth form.
In ten years she hopes that she still will be walking, travelling and meeting new people.
When asked what advice she would give Dave Horan for when he becomes principal, she said: “Be patient.”
That is very good advice because when it comes down to children, all you need is patience.
She will miss everyone dearly — staff, students and everyone she has met. She has been a great citizen to our lovely home island of Bermuda.
She will be in our hearts forever and hopefully we will be in hers, too.
As she leaves for France we will never forget all the great things she has done for Bermuda and Warwick Academy, and we hope she lands safely, settles into France and has a nice time.
