Farewell from Sharon & Lorna

27 November 2020

Dear Glenaeon Families,

I’d just like to say a huge thank you to all the children, parents, teachers and all school staff for your loyal patronage over the last four and a half years since we opened the Gentle Café on campus. It has been my pleasure to have cooked (from the heart) for you all, and in such beautiful surroundings.

I have cooked and been in the Restaurant & Food Service industry for just on 40 years, and I am sincere when I say I will miss the school, the children and, well, all of you really. From all the wonderful Parent / Volunteers who have come and shared the day over a coffee and a laugh (and a few beads of sweat HA!). It was fantastic to have met so many lovely mums and dads over my time in the kitchen.  It was not an easy job, but it’s the one that has fit my mind and body comfortably for the last few years.

Friday the 4th of December will mark the final day of a 21-year relationship with the Glenaeon Community for now, and I must say, what a fantastically fulfilling couple of decades it has been, through my boys as students, and my tenure in the school café!

We will be passing on the pots, pans and wooden spoons over to Peter and Marian to create new fare (and some old favourites I’m sure) for you commencing Term 1 2021.

They, like Lorna and I, will be hoping to meet many of you in the kitchen via the sign up zone as volunteers, they will also make you a lovely coffee and feed your child a complimentary morning tea and lunch on that day (as well as  feeding you of course).

Lorna and I would just like to say thank you for entrusting us to have cooked for and nourished all your beautiful children.

It really was our pleasure to have done so.

Merry Christmas to one and all!

Thanks again,
Sharon & Lorna
