Dear Parents and Carers
I am saddened to share the news that Mrs Marion Russell, who was until recently, a Nursery Nurse at Longlands Primary School, passed away at the weekend.
Mrs Russell work at the school for more than ten years before retiring last July. During this time Mrs Russell proved herself to be a dedicated professional, whose patient and caring nature enhanced the lives of countless children. She always ensured that the pupils in her care settled quickly into school and developed into confident caring, happy children with a love of learning.
Mrs Russell will be fondly remembered by all the members of the Longlands community and our thoughts are with her family at this sad time.
