The Education and
Employment Directorate this week said goodbye to Secondary Raising Attainment
Adviser, Vanessa Tissington (photo attached) on completion of her contract.
Vanessa has been with the
Education Directorate since last September supporting improvements at Prince
Andrew School and raising educational standards on St Helena.
In a farewell reception for
Vanessa, Colin Moore, Director of Education and Employment said:
“Vanessa has made an
outstanding contribution to education on St Helena during her time here.
Vanessa exudes enthusiasm and anyone who came into contact with her couldn’t
help but be impressed with her desire to see young people make the most of
their opportunities. She is a very tenacious professional with very high
standards and a heart of gold.
“I know there will always
be a continuing affection that Vanessa will hold for St Helena and particularly
for Prince Andrew School. We will also have a continuing high regard and long
lasting memory of the contribution that Vanessa has made.
“We all wish her the very
best for her future career. She leaves secondary education on the Island in a
much stronger state than when she first arrived.”
“The time I spent on the
Island has been one of the most rewarding of my professional career. I have
enjoyed every minute and hope that I have contributed to the continuing
improvement of educational standards on St Helena.”
Vanessa departed the Island on
Wednesday to return to the UK where the first thing she will be doing is
greeting her new grandchild who was born on Tuesday 20 August.
