I only have good memories of attending St Julians Primary School. I loved all of my teachers and was so pleased when Mrs Evans taught my son as she was certainly one of my favourite teachers! I used to love Sports Day on the huge playing fields and always remember wishing the swimming pool was still in use. I was quite shy in school, so was pleased when I was chosen as the May Queen. I got to wear a princess dress, a crown and sit on a big chair whilst watching the pupils dance around the pole with ribbons! Miss Coombs was my year 6 teacher and I remember my favourite topic with her was learning about World War 2 and getting the chance to see a gas mask. I spent play time on the yard and remember the two large walls on each yard! They were used as football goals! I made lots of friends in school and I’m still friends with a lot now! Mr Draisy was the Head Teacher and Mr Drewitt was the Deputy Head Teacher. I was lucky enough never to get in trouble by either! I remember assembly time with Mr Draisy and singing so many songs as well as always finishing with the school prayer. When my son attended the school, more memories came flooding back especially during school concerts! I was always an angel and I still have the video recording which my son & niece and nephew love to watch!! I have such good school memories and I’m so glad my son & other children in my family have got to make their own memories at St Julians Primary.
I went on to attend St Julians Comprehensive School and left in 1996 where I then went on to study at Cross-keys College. I then attended University of Wales Institute Cardiff (UWIC) and achieved a HND and Degree in Hospitality & Business Management. During my degree, I worked in America & Dubai on a work placement. My son was born in 2004 and I started working for a large bank. I have been employed at the Banking Group as a Team Manager for 12 years. This year, I have enrolled at Newport College and am in my first year studying Access to Healthcare and Nursing. Once I finish this course, I’m hoping to go to university to study Paediatric Nursing.
