1981 ~ Farewell Father Toovey


Towards the end of 1981, with the school's Golden Jubilee behind him, 
the time came for Father Toovey to leave St Martin's Church Ruislip.

To say farewell (though not 'Goodbye' since he continued to have an association 
with the school through his wife, teacher Pam Toovey), 
the school and its Parents' Association arranged both a Leaving Party 
and the presentation of a suitable present
on 2nd November.

Mr Geof. Jones, on behalf of the Parents' Association,
says words of greeting and expressions of gratitude
for the contribution Father Toovey has made
both to the school and to the lives of the children.
He reflects especially on the innovative Lent Assemblies 
for both Infants and Juniors.

Father Toovey responds with some fond memories of his years in Ruislip.

The presentation then follows, 
a specially commissioned signed print of the school
A reception follows, time for thoughts of the past 
and best wishes for the future.
