Math teacher to many Bishops boys over the years

Sue McPetrie is retiring - let's give her a huge send-off

Sue McPetrie has been on the teaching staff — in the Maths Department — since 2001. She was head of the Department from 2004-2014. She is the longest serving staff member of Mallett House, which she joined as a tutor in 2003 when the House opened. During her time she has worked tirelessly on the house gardens and common areas. 

Frequently speaking in in chapel and participating in Evensong, she is not only a teacher, but a mother of ODs Chris (2010/11M), Michael (2005M) and (late) son Allan-John (M2003).

But now she is retiring at the end of this year and to send her off, we - and especially those who came into contact with her - are asked to sign her e-card and leave her a message on this sad yet happy occasion. To do this click HERE and follow the self-explanatory instructions.
