Staff Leavers 2016: Caroline Tibble

What can I say about Caroline Tibble?
I think it’s fair to say that entering the school as a terrified year 7, the infamous Miss Tibble, head of discipline, was one person that I never wanted to encounter!

Gaining a place in the production of West Side Story and meeting Miss Tibble face to face was an entirely different story. I can safely say that she gave every single person in all her productions not only encouragement but absolute faith in themselves to put on an incredible performance. The dedication, time and energy put into all of her musicals despite constant adversity was unparalleled.

Her character and spirit to get people out of tricky situations was something I will always aspire to- I still remember her managing to organise 3 separate flights at totally different times from a completely different airport to the one originally intended, when we found ourselves stuck in snow on the school skiing trip.

The highlight of my entire school time was performing in We Will Rock You. I knew after that production that if the school could ever find someone as committed as Miss Tibble, someone who would give her heart and soul in everything she was involved in; then they would have found someone truly special.
