Acting head teacher at Kells, Wendy Figes said: “Rachel was passionate about children and enjoyed being with them.”

“She had a calm, quiet manner and made everyone feel at ease in her presence. She was thoughtful and kind.”

“Rachel’s love for the community she served really shone through and it will be this loving heart we will miss the most.”

“Losing Rachel has left a huge hole in our school community but our deepest sympathies are with her family and friends in their time of grief.”

Ms. Figes added that Rachel had worked in previous schools before joining Kells Infants, where she had “touched a large number of young lives.”

In addition to her day-to-day tasks as a year one teacher Rachel also oversaw the development and improvement of writing across the curriculum.  

The school will be closed on Friday, January 27, to enable staff to attend a funeral service for Rachel. It will reopen again after the weekend on January 30.
