Kips Eaton (nee Soundy, later Rowe)

I taught at Rupert House from the early 1960s to the 1990s. Initially, I taught Form 1 (when I was Miss Soundy). At that time the head was Miss Fawcett, who lived on the premises.

 Later, I taught the Nursery class and had a lovely time!  I made many lasting friendships with my fellow staff members. The atmosphere was always very relaxed and welcoming and we enjoyed painting, singing, Nativity plays, trips to the fire station, train journeys, gardening (planting beans and potatoes) and cooking.

It was a privilege for me to become thoroughly acquainted with this band of four-year-olds, many of whom must have their own families now and interesting careers. Happy days!
