Today we celebrated Mrs Nation’s time at Herne Bay Junior School with an assembly reflecting on all the wonderful and inspirational opportunities she has brought to so many of our children… and staff members too!

The children had written her a poem ‘An Ode to Mrs Nation’ which was recorded by Dr John Cooper Clarke; one of the many visitors who she invited to our school.
A song was also written to ‘Hallelujah’ where the words were adapted and sung to an emotional audience, including Patrick Leeson and Helena Evans from the Local Authority.
The staff and children had also made a video for her to the song ‘Time of my Life’ which gave many laughs along with a few tears.
Mrs Nation has brought so much to so many people; children, staff and parents but she leaves behind a legacy that will take the school forward from strength to strength.
For this we thank her.
