Administrative Manager: Mrs. Lydia Barret joined the School in 2012 after working as the secretary for the George Business Chamber for three and a half years. She previously worked in the Import / Export field for various Clearing and forwarding agents on Seafreight and Airfreight. Her friendly, attentive and organised demeanor is appreciated by all she works with.

She has been married for 39 years to Ken Barrett and has two daughters Audra and Rhonda. She dotes on her three grandsons, who live in Otego, New York.

The menagerie at home consists of two dogs, two cats, a Cockatiel and a lot of fish. She enjoys camping, 4X4-outings, doing cross stitching and reading. When she is very angry or upset she reverts to doing the ironing – quietly but steaming!
