CARTER High School bids a fond farewell to Rina Howard who retired after 30 years of loyal service to the school after joining the Carter High School family in 1985 as a volunteer­ in the tuck shop when her eldest son started Grade 8.

In 1998 she stepped in as a relief for a friend who worked at reception and applied when the post was later advertised. She thrived in that environment as her personality was well suited to meeting and greeting visitors, staff and pupils. Howard quickly acclimatised to the team and moved to the cash office in 2009.

“The time has come for retirement and I do look forward to the time I will spend with my dear husband, our three sons, their wives and our special and beautiful six grandchildren and attend their sport days. I also look forward to relaxing, reading more and to do more sewing and knitting.”

Looking back, different people have impacted the lives of staff and children at the school and Mrs Howard is one of them. Her essence of team, dedication and encouragement was much appreciated and will be missed. On behalf of Carter High School, we thank her for always giving her best and the legacy she has left behind and wish her good health and happiness for her retirement.
