It is with great sadness that we have learnt of the passing away of a very dear teacher, Mrs Marina Opperman, on Tuesday evening, 24 October 2017.
Mrs Opperman was part of the teaching fraternity for 40 years. She was a Grade 3 teacher at our school for 25 years, retiring in 2006. After her retirement she continued to teach at La Montagne Primary School and often stood in at our school as a substitute teacher. Mrs Opperman was a dedicated teacher, a loyal friend to many staff members and learners and always went beyond the call of duty. She not only focused on her learners in her class but also arranged Adult Education classes for our ground staff who did not have a formal education at that time. On Saturday mornings she offered her services to the book room lady to take stock at the end of the year. These are only a few examples of her dedication, hard work and commitment. She will be sadly missed. RIP Marina.
