Long-serving assistant farewelled at Thyme and Place.TRISH HEASLIP December 12, 2012 4:16am
Retiring Avenel Preschool assistant Marlene Hull and husband Noel at her farewell function at Thyme and Place.
Avenel Preschool just won’t be the same.
Marlene Hull has been the assistant there for 24 years, since the kinder was built after the steering committee sold sheep manure in Melbourne until enough money was raised.
Mrs Hull retired last week and about 90 people attended Thyme and Place at Avenel for a function in her honour.
Mrs Hull has been a very special person in the community and has taught generations at the preschool — some of the adults who were at the function were students under her care, and some now have children at kinder.
You don’t have to spend long with Mrs Hull to feel that she is a special person with a huge heart for children, and the children in turn flock to her side when she reads in the book corner or sits on her favourite seat in the sandpit.
Mrs Hull has been a positive and loving constant within the community, and to say that she is loved by all is an understatement.
As a work colleague Mrs Hull has been a wonderful friend and we really had many laughs.
