Mrs Pam Willmann was the house mother of Strong House from January 1998 until December 2002. As a farewell gift on Pam’s retirement, the boys of Strong House gave Pam a Lhasa Apso puppy which has been by her side every day since. As a sign of respect that she had for the boys that she cared for over her five years as their second mother, Pam named the dog ‘Strong’. Over the past seventeen years, Strong has given so much love to Pam and her husband Glenn (who was Churchie’s School Marshall from 1996 to 2004). Unfortunately however, a recent visit to the vet revealed a large tumour inside his mouth that could not be removed, so the decision was made on 17 October 2019 to let him continue to sleep. Pam would like to thank the boys of Strong House once again, and in particular the Boys of 2002, for their generosity and love for such a wonderful gift that she will always cherish.
