We are delighted to reveal Year 5 teacher Miss Emily Fielden and her partner Seb will be the new House Parents at Hetty House from September.
At present Zoe Calder is in charge of the junior boarding house where the Year five, six and seven boys reside.
Miss Calder is soon off to go and live in the sunnier climes of Uganda to work in an international school. She has done a sterling job at Hetty and has helped establish a nurturing and very homely boarding house. We wish her all the very best when the sad day eventually comes when she will leave us.
Emily and her partner Seb, a development officer for RGC, are both very excited to get stuck in at Hetty.
Emily already does evening duty at the house and weekends, and says she enjoys every minute of it.
“It really is a dream come true to get this job, Seb and I can’t wait until September when we can move in,” said Emily.
“Seb says he’ll be playing rugby with the boys on the front lawn, and he’s also Marvel obsessed so am sure we’ll have plenty of movie nights and I promise there will be popcorn.”
She continued: “We will also be taking them to a local supermarket to buy ingredients for a cooking night.”
Emily says the children can also expect trips to the cinema, local beaches for a paddle and an ice cream and for barbeques for when the weather is warmer.
“There will also be craft nights, and when birthday’s come along there will be a big fuss for those who are celebrating their big day, I’m planning on tea parties and balloons,” said a smiling Emily, who says she’s already looking forward to making the house look festive at Christmas.
“Seb and I will have big shoes to fill when Miss Calder leaves as she has done a fantastic job at making Hetty a very homely place where the children feel safe and secure, but we can’t wait to start-we’d move in tomorrow if we could.”
