A popular school heroine was awarded a special ceremony after over a quarter of a century of service.
Christine Carroll, 61, of Liversedge, was congratulated by staff and children for her 25 years of as a dedicated lunchtime supervisor at Holy Spirit Catholic Primary School, in Bath Road, Heckmondwike.
Ms Carroll, who also works as an after-school cleaner at Heckmondwike High School Grammer, said she received a surprise from the council.
She said: “I’ve been given letters and cards from the school, the children, and I’ve been recognised by Kirklees Council.
“It’s important to have patience when working with children, but I love it and look forward to the summer holidays ending to get back to it.”
Headteacher, John Cooper said: “Christine is a loyal and reliable member of staff who takes her duties seriously.”
