Liskeard School and Community College had an emotional end to the term this year as long serving and hugely respected staff member Sally Davis retired after 34 year’s service.

Sally started working at Liskeard School back in 1982, working in the Technology Department as a Home Economics Teacher. Sally then diversified her role to focus on childcare, an area of work that to this day remained close to her heart.

Sally took 2 years out for maternity leave to allow Sally and husband Robin, a Data Assistant at Liskeard School for 7 years, to raise their daughter Tamar, a former student at Liskeard School and Liskeard Sixth Form.

Sally returned to Liskeard School as Head of Care, a role she truly excelled at, ensuring many students went on to work in nurseries in the area having been mentored to such high standards. During these years Sally received outstanding reports from inspectors for her courses and her teaching.

Sally then returned to the Technology Department teaching food to students in Year 7 and 8. One of Sally’s greatest achievements was being part of the team that set up Liskeard School Nursery, an Ofsted Outstanding nursery located at Liskeard School. Sally also jointly set up the first ever school prom and was responsible for running the prom in the early years.

In retirement Sally plans to spend more time in the garden and on projects in the home. She also plans to spend more time with her mother and mother-in-law as well as complete voluntary work, add some new hobbies like bee keeping and photography and, of course,  looking after her husband and taking holidays in term time!

Head Teacher Alex Lingard said “Sally will be sorely missed by students and staff alike and is welcome back at any time. Everyone would like to wish her all the very best in retirement.”
