Pupils at a Burnley primary school said a sad farewell to one of their staff members who has retired after more than 30 years.
Mrs Maureen Campbell is known to generations of children after working as a governor, volunteer, teaching assistant, lunchtime welfare supervisor and out of school club assistant at Rosegrove Infants’ School over an amazing three decades.
The grandmother-of-seven enjoyed a week of celebrations at school during which she was reunited with former colleagues, family and friends at a party andeven got the chance to say goodbye to pupils at a special assembly.
She was also presented with a bracelet with a rose charm by staff at the busyschool.
Mrs Campbell plans to use her retirement to take more holidays and spend more time with her family, including her husband Steve, her three children and grandchildren.
Infant school headteacher Mrs Jacquie Stewart said of Mrs Campbell: “She is doing three jobs at the moment, she will be difficult to replace.”
