Two sixth class pupils Sarah Aboud and Anastacia Caraman composed a wonderful poem entitled "Goodbye Tension...Hello Pension" for Carmel and delivered it with style during her farewell ceremony.
Goodbye Tension...Hello Pension!
Now it’s time to say goodbye
We will miss you very much.
For all you do for us each day
You never once made a fuss!
You cleaned, you mopped day in day out
It was never a hassle to you.
You put a smile on everyone’s face
by simply being you!
You left the school spick and span
Even the windows, pots and pans!
You led your team through the halls
and never once went off the walls!
Oh how fast the years have gone by
Many a principal, teacher and pupil have passed your eye.
Going around room to room
With your smile, laugh and sweeping broom.
We thank you for all that you have done
It is very much appreciated.
Hang up your mop, lie back and rest
and remember in OLV
you will always be the best!
It is with sadness that we say "Goodbye" to Carmel. We wish her only the best of health so that she can enjoy her retirement with her family. We thank her most sincerely for all her work in Our Lady of Victories national school. No doubt her many interests will ensure that she will have an active retirement! Ní bheidh do leithéid ann arís!
