THEY live together, they work together – now they are retiring together!

Long-serving husband and wife Derek and Maureen Morris are retiring from their jobs at Doncaster Deaf Trust after a combined 45 years working at the school on Leger Way.

They will be leaving their jobs at the Doncaster Deaf School at the end of the academic year – and are already planning their first holiday outside the peak season!

Derek said: “Taking a holiday abroad out of peak season will be a novelty as we haven’t been able to due to school term time at the Trust for at least the last 27 years!”

Derek is currently a programme manager at the Deaf Trust and is responsible for overseeing the teaching staff in construction, motor mechanics, design technology, media and sign language.

Maureen has worked at the site for 18 years.

For the last 10, she has been a well-respected educational support worker helping students with a variety of theory work.

Prior to that Maureen specialised in after-hours care of the pupils.
