Tabeetha School, Jaffa

Head of Primary Report

Change is in the air. With the imminent departure of three of our Primary School teachers we cannot help but feel the winds of change.

Liz Stout, our current Grade 2 teacher has decided to leave Tabeetha after almost a decade of service. She is going on to work with Jews for Jesus on educational material. Liz, you will be missed by us. On a personal note I have worked with Liz from the beginning of her career at Tabeetha and have watched her grow professionally. She has made a tremendous contribution to the school during her time here. Best wishes from all of us. Maggie Bishouti, Fourth Grade form teacher, past student and provider of goodwill and positivity will be taking a break from Tabeetha School. Frommy perspective, Maggie is as much a part of Tabeetha as Tabeetha is part of Jaffa. I do not want to say that we wish her much luck in her endeavours because Maggie does not need luck. Wherever Maggie chooses to be will be blessed with her positivity and embracing spirit. Maggie, you will be missed by all of us. And you’ll be back! Since 2012 Miss Yaro has been a fixture at Tabeetha School. She originally came to us as a student teacher from the United States and then stayed on to cover a maternity leave. Taylor is a strong and professional teacher. She accepted the challenge of teaching Year 6 when it returned to be part of the Primary School. She has done an outstanding job of meeting the needs of those students who are ready to move on to the Upper School. Like her students, Taylor will be missed; she is an integral part of the primary team. We send her off with good wishes and the knowledge that wherever she lands, she will be successful.

In the same way that I have been able to watch teachers grow and develop, I get to watch your children as they grow a nd develop. The years go by more quickly when you have children and when you work in a school and 'have' lots of children, the years go by even more quickly.

Stop and smell the flowers, listen to the rush of the sea, eat slowly enjoying the flavour of the food, walk don't run, leave time so you can go without stress. "This is the day that the Lord has made" please make time to rejoice.
