THE site supervisor at Moorside Community Primary Academy in Skelmersdale has retired after 22 years service.
Gillian Murray’s long-service at the school in Back Lane was recognised on Thursday, July 21 and staff presented her with gifts at a special assembly attended by pupils and her family.
The 71-year-old, who lives in Up Holland, started work at Moorside in May 2000.
Her duties included opening up the school in the morning; cleaning and locking up at night.
Moorside headteacher Richard Davis, said: “Gill will be a huge loss to our school community. She has worked with five headteachers, five business managers, more than 1,500 children and more than 3,000 parents.
“Our school community will not be the same without her laugh, her hard work and her smile. Here’s to a long and happy retirement!”
Gillian said: “I will be sad to go and will miss everyone. This school has been a part of my life.
“I really enjoyed working at the school, but there comes a time in your life when you hit retirement.”
