Event - Remembering a Past Teacher

March 2020

Back in April 2019, Abbey Catholic Primary school were delighted to welcome Sr Catharine Pearson, an Ursuline nun.

Sr Catharine had come to look at the gravestone of her mother – Marjorie Pearson – who had been a teacher in the Abbey School in the late 1930s/early 1940s and who very sadly died in 1943 while still a teacher at our school.

As the gravestone was in a poor state of repair, her family contacted the memorial masons to see if they could renovate it.

Sr Catharine Pearson, a school teacher throughout her life, was very pleased to visit the school where her mother had taught and enjoyed a tour around the school.
