We wish Health, success and happiness in their new spheres of work to Mr. Hackman, Mr. E. Webb, Mr. K. O. Evans, Mr. W. Winton and Mr. Williams, who will leave us at the end of this term.  Along period of service has closed for Mr. Hackman, who has successfully piloted many through the economics courses in the Upper School, as well as giving most generously of time, interest, and energy in many activities, in chief of which are Careers and National Savings.  He leaves us to become lecturer in Economics at Kingston Technical College.  Mr. E. Webb is going to Ramsay, Isle of Man, as Senior Biology Master [Brian Hester writes that 'Eggy' Webb actual went to King William's College at Castletown].  His work here has been outstandingly successful in spite of many drawbacks due to lack of a laboratory in the School.  A man of many parts and varied attainments carries to a high level, his loss will be greatly felt.  Mr. Winton is going to Greenford county Grammar School, Mr. Evans to Newport High School.  Mr. Williams leaves us to teach at Ottery St. Mary, South Devon.
