In worship today the children and staff joined together to give thanks for the amazing commitment shown to our school by Mrs Ruth Wake.
Many of you will be aware Ruth is our Chair of Governors and has worked in this role for many years.
Ruth previously worked as a bursar at Formby Range and shortly after her ‘retirement’ started to help out in the office here at St. Johns.
This was 15 years ago and since this time Ruth has worked each day to oversee the financial management of the school on a purely voluntary basis. She has quite literally saved the school thousands of pounds, money that has been spent on staffing, upgrading the school building and additional resources.
Mrs Wake has decided to step aside from this role and enjoy a much earned rest / retirement.
She will continue to chair the governing body but I’m sure you would like to join with me in thanking Ruth for her extraordinary and selfless dedication to the children and families of Ainsdale St. Johns.
