Headmistress Dr Denise Lodge said:
“This is a wonderful recognition of Mrs Hayes commitment and excellent teaching in this field and we are overjoyed for her, it is a lovely culmination at her final year in teaching before retirement.”
Jill Johnson, Teaching Resources Officer at Putney High School, has been rewarded for her 30 years’ long service to the Girl Guides.
Mrs Johnson still volunteers for the Girl Guides and is currently a leader of the 5th Putney Guides - girls aged 10-15 years. Many of the girls in her unit are also Putney High School pupils.
She was presented with a silver brooch and certificate by the District Commissioner Jodie O’Regan at the Putney District Thinking Day Event for 90 girls and leaders.
