Memorial Service for Whiston Head Teacher & Student

By on Wednesday, October 12, 2016

A memorial service to pay tribute to a much-loved Whiston head teacher will take place on Tuesday 18 October at martyn_campbell_st_edmund_arrowsmith_school_whiston11am in Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral.

Pupils, colleagues, friends and members of the community are all invited to remember Mr Martyn Campbell, Principal of St Edmund Arrowsmith Catholic Centre for Learning at the service, following his death earlier this year.

The service will also remember Sean Gillies, a 16-year-old student at the school who sadly died quite unexpectedly a few days before Mr Campbell.

Mr Campbell passed away in June following an illness, having given 30 years of service to the school. He was an extremely well known and well liked figure in the local community and the memorial service is an opportunity for anyone who wishes to pay their respects to do so.

Speaking in June, John Robinson, Chair of Governors at St Edmund Arrowsmith School, said, “Mr Campbell was highly respected and popular among both staff and students, governors and the wider community, always willing to help students to achieve their best.

“Mr Campbell will be missed immensely by staff, students and governors and we feel privileged to have been a part of his life.”

    Mr Campbell was an amazing man. Always willing to help. Always with his humour to lighten any mood. He will be sorely missed.
