Letter to Parents 14th March 2017

Dear Parents/Carers

It is with great sadness that I am writing to inform you of the death of a member of our staff. We learned yesterday that Mrs Wood, our Lab Technician, had died on Sunday after a long battle with cancer. Mrs Wood had worked at DSTC since 2008, was a valued member of staff and will be very sadly missed by us all.

The students were told of this sad news today. We do understand that some students will need additional support following this news, particularly as Mrs Wood’s daughter is a DSTC student. If you feel that your daughter is in need of further support please contact her Pastoral Lead in the first instance:
Years 7 and 8– Mrs Harrison yvonne.harrison@dstc.kent.sch.uk
Years 9, 10 and 11 -Mrs Sutton lorna.sutton@dstc.kent.sch.uk
Years 12 and 13– Mrs Harvey esther.harvey@dstc.kent.sch.uk

We would like to raise some funds to purchase a bench in memory of Mrs Wood and will be in contact with details of this shortly should you wish to donate.

Yours sincerely
Mrs Anne Davis
Principal
