Goodrich Church of England Primary School are giving a fond farewell to a lunchtime supervisor who has been watching over the pupils for nearly half-a-century.

Mrs Frances Thomas first arrived 48 years ago to serve her first lunch at Goodrich Primary School.

Mrs Miles and the whole school community are in awe of her commitment and service and will miss her greatly.

In her role as lunchtime supervisor, she has helped, supported, and played playground games with hundreds of children, including her late-son, daughter and, more recently, her granddaughter.

Julie Blake said: “Mrs Thomas leaves with so many special memories she will cherish of the friendships she’s made, the staff she has worked with, and families she has met during nearly five decades of dedication and care. Mrs Miles and the whole school community are in awe of her commitment and service and will miss her greatly.

‘‘We hope that she can now use her time to meet with family and friends and enjoy her garden, although we hope that she will still find time to visit us. Thank you so much for everything Mrs Thomas.”
