I have some rather sad news for you, well for us all…. Mrs Blaza – our fabulous Italian teacher is leaving Pratts Bottom. Mrs Blaza’s own children will both be in school from September and she wishes to work full time again and has managed to secure a job in a school very close to them. I know that Mrs Blaza will be a fantastic addition to her new team but she will be sorely missed here at Pratts Bottom. Mrs Blaza has a few surprises up her sleeve Italian-wise before she leaves but more about that in the next few weeks. I know that you will all join me in wishing her all the very best in her new job. As for the future of Italian here at Pratts Bottom – we are in the process of making some decisions about the way forward and we will let you know once that has all been formalised.
