A preparation room in the science block at Brackley’s Magdalen College School is to be named after a teacher who has retired after giving 40 years’ service to education.
Lyn Hunt left the school at Christmas after four decades to take a well-deserved retirement.
She was described by colleagues as an ‘amazing and inspirational’ person who had given a lifetime of service and had spread positivity throughout the school, among the staff team and pupils.
Her work was as a technician and a senior technician inckuded preparing practical equipment, making up solutions used in laboratories and assisting teachers with practical skills including demonstrations.
Dr Nick Dixon, Head of Science, said: “The impact that Lyn has had on tens of thousands of students’ learning of science in our school cannot be underestimated. She is relentlessly positive, a tremendous team player and genuinely one of the most kind and thoughtful people we know. Words cannot express how thankful we are.
“She is an amazing and inspirational person who we will all miss very much.”
Madgalen College science faculty has decided to name its preparation room on the Waynflete site after Mrs Hunt in recognition of her valuable decades of service.
“From this point onwards it will be known as The Lyn Hunt Preparation Room,” said Dr Dixon.
“The science faculty and wider school wish her the very best in her retirement.”
Mrs Hunt looks forward to spending more time with her husband Trevor and seeing more of her family, both locally and in New Zealand.
Dr Dixon said that knowing Mrs Hunt as they do, her colleagues suspect that she will not be aiming to live life quietly in her retirement.
