MRS MAGGIE CORBIN
We were very sad to hear of the death of Mrs Corbin (Miss Walker) earlier this month at the age of 95. She died at a nursing home in Harrogate, having moved there to be nearer her sister after the death of her husband, Harold Corbin.
She taught Art at Varndean from 1949 until her retirement in 1980 and was Head of Department. Many will remember her beautiful italic handwriting, a skill she also taught to students, as well as her contribution to the production of the annual Varndean Chronicle.
Varndean would like to send the school's sympathy to her sister.
Fantastic to welcome @EllaDaish into school today to talk with students about her #EndPeriodPlastic campaign. It was lovely to hear our students speak so passionately about this issue - more news to follow! #ecofriendly
Massive thanks @alfiejukes_ for coming in to talk all things #songwriting to our Year 11 GCSE #music class recently & for performing one of his songs live! The Q&A afterwards on composition & life in the world of musical theatre went down very well #inspirational @VarndeanMusic https://t.co/Qjfb2eApca
