Farewell Mr Barry Southwell – We Will Truly Miss You!
It was a week of heartfelt farewells, reminiscing and emotions as the School community farewelled our much-loved and respected Mr Barry Southwell. After 24 years of dedication to OFGS, Mr Southwell said goodbye to our School and is now entering a new stage of his life, embarking on all the exciting adventures that retirement will bring. Throughout the last few weeks many events – from a formal dinner, classroom visits, morning teas, lunches and a special farewell assembly – were held to honour and thank him for all that he has brought to each and every family, staff and student over the past 24 years. The School will definitely miss his caring, joyful and loving nature. We pray that as he steps into this next stage of his life, that God will continue to pour out His blessings on him and his family.
