In 1956 Wyn sailed for Northern Rhodesia (now Zambia).
1956-63 - she taught history & other subjects at Chipembi Girls School, the country’s leading school for African girls. These girls went on to hold very responsible positions e.g. Government Ministers, Ambassadors & the Higher Commissioner in London.
1963-72 the Methodist Church, to become the United Church of Zambia (UCZ), appointed her Head of a new secondary boarding school in the Southern Province, Njase Girls’ School. 'A demanding & challenging post but a thrill to witness the birth of a new nation, to share in the early struggles & the realisation of many dreams.'
1974-84 - Luckley-Oakfield School, near Wokingham – again 'satisfaction & joy of witnessing a time of growth ... much happy fulfilment'.
Please support the ongoing Educational work, inspired by Wyn's life of Service, including funding the 'Wyn Cornish Awards' and building a new school hall.
There is so much need, every penny will be spent very, very carefully.
