Share your memories to mark Jane's retirement from Lynn nursery school




As an “iconic” member of staff at a Lynn nursery prepares to bow out, her team is looking for help to prepare a unique celebration of her career.

Colleagues of Jane Heaphy, who works at the King’s Lynn Nursery School, are doing some forward planning to make sure her pending retirement is a bit special.

After 33 years working at the school in The Walks, she is due to walk out of the classrooms for the final time in July.

Fellow teachers and staff have come up with a plan to see that she leaves carrying a book of memories of her time there.

School secretary, Sam Kempton, explained that, because of the current restrictions and the continuing uncertainty relating to coronavirus, it was difficult to plan something special to mark the occasion so they have decided to create a memories book for Jane.

And they are hoping that former parents, or anyone else who has been associated with the school during Jane’s time there might be able to help with the project.

She said: “We have set up a dedicated email address in the hope that people will send us pictures, memories and messages to include in the book.

“There are probably lots of pictures out there that have not been seen before.”

“We toyed with various ideas for celebrating the occasion but, with all the uncertainty, this seemed a good option.

“Jane is a much loved and iconic member of staff.”

Jane, who lives in Lynn, is a nursery practitioner at the school, which has a roll of about 75 children aged from two to four years.

The school has a partnership with the Highgate Infant School.

Anyone who can help with the memory book is asked to email messagesforheaphy@gmail.com
