Closing the book on 16 years

Librarian Elsa Goncalves is bidding farewell to St George’s Grammar School at the end of the year when she retires. Ms Goncalves, 62, of Edgemead has been part of the Mowbray school for 16 years. She has seen pupils grow from Grade R to matric. “Seeing the excitement on the pupils’ faces when I have a book that the pupils are looking for is the reason why I do what I do and I get excited when I get to recommend a book to them,” she says.
