Sad News

2nd Aug 2017


Dear Romsey Primary School families,


It is with much sadness that I inform you that Mrs Bernie Carter passed away peacefully last evening after her battle with an on-going illness. Bernie has been a valued member of our school community for the past 7 years.

I had the privilege of spending some time in hospital with her in the last month and she was still inquiring about the children, parents and staff. Her friendly and caring approach to her work will be greatly missed. Bernie was a tireless and energetic worker who always went above and beyond for her work. No job was ever too big or too small for her. The funeral will be a private occasion and as such the school community will honour Bernie at a later date.

This will be upsetting for many in the community, especially some of our students. The children were informed at the end of the school day. If families require assistance in supporting students with this news please contact us at the office.

At this time as a school and collective community, can I please ask that we all look after each other as we remember and mourn the passing of this beautiful lady.


Kind regards,


Loren Peavey
