It was with great regret that many heard of the death of Miss Calisé for so many years headmistress of the West Street Infants School, which took place on Wednesday at her residence in S. John's-road. Miss Calisé came to Newbury in January 1872, to fill the post of Headmistress of S. Nicholas' Infant School, which was then held in the present Salvation Army Barracks.

Later she opened the new School in West Street and the numbers of children rapidly increased. She was so much beloved by the children, and appreciated by the parents, many of whom trace the success of their boys in life, to the thoroughness of their early education. The teaching at West-street was of a high order and H.M. Inspector (the Rev. C.D. Duport) considered it to be one of the very best Infant School in his district, and sent many teachers from neighbouring schools to study Miss Calisé's methods. An early report reads:- “The tone, intelligence, and general working of the School, prove Miss Calisé to be a teacher of very high qualifications.”

Miss Calisé was no less happy in the training of the pupil teachers. A considerable number took high places in examinations, and have become very successful teachers.

Failing health compelled Miss Calisé to resign her teaching in December, 1910, after 38 years work. She continued, however, to do much active work for the good of the community, till in December, 1915, she was attacked by a serious illness, and after much suffering entered into Rest on April 11th, 1917.

The funeral, recording her wishes, was a simple one. Many friends and old scholars gathered in church to join in a last act of respect to her memory. Many beautiful flowers were sent, including a wreath from “Grateful Parents.” Miss Calisé's only sister (Mrs.Loder) and her niece, Miss Eva Loder, were the only relatives in England who could attend the funeral. The other mourners were the Misses Todd and Miss Johnson.
