Peachester farewells Mrs Rayner

AFTER 40 years of dedicated service to school children and communities across Queensland, Lyn Rayner is setting her sights on a well-deserved retirement and spending more time with her recently retired husband, Des, and their family.

Lyn began her career in 1981 at Calliope State School as a classroom teacher. She taught at different primary schools and, since starting at Peachester State School in 2012, has taught many different age groups.

More recently, Lyn has enjoyed her role as a support teacher, mentoring and assisting her colleagues as well as providing much valued learning support to hundreds of children.

School principal Kim Fillery said the entire school community had benefitted from Lyn’s dedication and passion for both learning and teaching.

“The smooth functioning of the school day at Peachester is evidence that Lyn made it a priority to give generously of her time and experience,” Kim said.

The Peachester school community is looking forward to a time soon when they can celebrate Lyn’s career with her.

“All of us here will miss Mrs Rayner and we will never forget her contributions to our school,” school captain Alexandra Haslam said.
