Norma Garment attended a very special morning tea last week in her honour. She was recognised for her outstanding commitment to teaching Special Religious Education (formerly School Scripture) for 50 years. She started in Bourke in 1974 and later moved to Parkes teaching a lesson at all three primary schools each week. At her retirement morning tea last week she said every week was a highlight. Her main message to children is easily summed up in two songs she always taught: Jesus Loves Me and Love And Care For One Another.
