Jan Witheridge's Retirement....
Dear OWBA Member,
Mrs Jan Witheridge (86-19S)
Some of you may be aware that Jan Witheridge, WBS Prep Deputy Head, has been unwell for some time; last week the Prep School announced that with regret, Jan has now retired, as a consequence of her poor health.
Jan has been teaching at the Prep School for over thirty years, having arrived as Miss Wright in 1986.  She has made a century – teaching at the Prep for a hundred terms!
The OWBA would very much like to thank Jan for her long service to the Prep School and we shall be arranging an event next year.
If you would like to contribute to a present for Jan from the OWBA then please contact us at: [email protected]
Stuart Smith (73-80G)
OWBA President
