Farewell from Mr Jaffer
You may have heard by now that, after a decade, this is my final term at Central Primary School.
I want to start by saying ‘thank you’ to every single one of you, whether we’ve worked together or I’ve taught your children or we’ve simply shared the Central experience. You have all had an impact on my life in more ways than you can imagine and have made me the person I am today. These walls have been a home away from home and the people within it a second family.
I have always believed that Central is a special place: classrooms filled with magic, teachers that are resilient as they are brilliant, and a wonderfully diverse group of children. To say that I will miss it is an understatement. There will be a vast Central-shaped hole in my heart, but I will reminisce on my ten years here with nothing but fondness: from boisterous tree dressing assemblies and soaking teachers at the summer fair (you never got me!) to nativities-gone-wrong and the brilliant creative art showcases. I have loved every single second.
For those of you just starting out on your Central experience, I hope yours is as wonderful as mine was, and for those of you approaching the twilight, I hope you have as many joyous memories as I do.
Regardless of which end of the spectrum you fall upon, keep rocking, keep laughing and keep on learning, since you’re in the best possible place to do all three.
