Farewell Miss Goncalves 25/12/1965 – 09/06/2022

 
Miss Dina Goncalves, Headmistress

It is with a deep sense of grief and loss that we announce that our highly esteemed and beloved Headmistress since 2011, Ms Dina Gonçalves passed away on 9th June 2022 after a courageous battle with cancer. Miss G epitomised the Jeppe motto ‘Nothing is too difficult for the brave’ with every fibre of her being. Since news of her grievous illness became public it is clear from hundreds of tributes that have been pouring in that she touched and inspired the lives of many learners, staff and parents in a profound way and she will be greatly missed by her Jeppe family and the broader education community. She has been a brilliant Mathematics educator at the school since 1990.The school feels empty without her vibrant presence and leadership. In the words of the favoured Irish blessing so often sung by our choir  – ‘until we meet again may  God hold you – and us – in the palm of his hands.

Thank you for the many messages of love and support we have received at this time. We will be planning a memorial service that is a fitting tribute for our beloved Headmistress but do not want to rush it. We ask that you please give us time to grieve and remember her as a school and staff.

The current pupils and staff have a floral tribute to Miss G at the millennium garden fountain. We welcome old girls and members of the public who would like to pay tribute to Miss G in the form of flowers or messages to enter the school via the Kennet Street pedestrian gate and place their tributes in the paved area at foot of the Jeppe Pedestrian bridge.
