Celebrating Mrs Bramhall

Mrs Julie Bramhall, our beloved teacher and Assistant Principal, passed away on Friday 5th February. Mrs Bramhall has worked at our school for over 15 years and been part of Abram community for so many, many more. Mrs Bramhall is an amazing teacher with an infectious love of reading and she has made such a difference to so many children, families and colleagues lives. From her legendary Low Bank Ground residential, music obsession, passion for learning and children’s special library, to her listening ear and caring soul, our school and Abram community grieves this immense loss.

Where do I begin, I went to school when I was younger, and Mrs bramhall (Julie) helped me so much in year 6, I left primary in 2012,and I remember her writing on my leavers shirt "don't be a stranger" well that all changed, she then went onto teaching my brother Owen, who now in year 7 and my other brother Kyle who's in year 4/5. Julie was incredible and so inspirational and Julie would always put the children first, gone but never forgotten and I will never forget the memories I had with her and the things when I left school I still have and will cherish them forever! Julie one last thing you were simply the best! ❤️❤️
