School’s out after 37 years

After 37 years’ involvement and 26 years as an employee, Maureen Gamble (pictured) is retiring from her position at Holy Spirit College, Bellambi.

Her connection with the college began in 1964 when her husband John joined the teaching staff of what was then St Paul’s Marist College. Then, in 1976 Maureen joined the administrative staff.

She’s seen nine principals come and go and has retained close links with the Marist community.

But Maureen felt that she’d been there long enough and that it was “time someone else had the chance to enjoy it, too”.

But with a two-year-old grandson, Maureen could be kept pretty busy in spite of her retirement, although she hopes to improve her golf game.
