Dear Mrs. Coffin.
I hope you will be reading our greetings.
I wish you all the best to your 80th birthday. I'm so happy to be able to see you again after all these years.
Maybe you'll remember a curly red-headed german boy in your class: Standerd 3 in 1974.
I remember well, the way you would tell us the way Sir Francis Drake dealt with the Spanish Armada in your history leson.
The dearest greetings from
Georg Ruf

Dont  we  just  all  remember  our  school  teachers  so  well  ,  and  now  when we  look  back  we  know  that  they  had  best intent   for us youngsters   and  must  have  at times  had  the patience  of  Job  in  dealing  with  us and  trying  to  pass  on  knowledge to  us ..   To  Auntie  Noreen  .. a very happy  birthday   ..  80  is indeed a milestone ..

Aunty Nin, I think that's what we called you out of school, you look well.  Gosh it was like just the other day you were lecturing us about not being complacent about life. 
Ambition and hard work was what I remember you saying was needed.
 
Happy Birthday and all the best for the year.

Next to Mrs Coffins class was the guidance class and on the other side was the Afrikaans teacher, Mrs Williams, or Juffie.... she had that knack of pinching your shoulder in such a manner it would put karate kid to shame......

The one thing that always stuck in my mind that she told us, was if you burn yourself put toothpaste on the burn asap....

and the creaking noise you heard in your cdm house roof at night was only the roof contracting with the cold after being exposed the whole day to the desert sun.....

you look wonderful. So nice to see you. One thing that seems to stand out for me is your endless patience with our class. We mustve been the naughtiest you ever had! Charles Weyers, Johnny Visser and Gavin Munn. you had the best of the best!!!!
Here's wishing you a Happy Birthday on your 80th. God bless and many more.

Lots of love

Wishing you a very happy birthday Miss Coffin.  :auguri1: You were my teacher in standard 3 (back in 1977 ...  iknow ... ) and told my parents that I should consider becoming a teacher. I got it all wrong and studied law instead  :emot19: . Must admit that I do sometimes think that it would have been great to be a nursery school teacher.
