Happy retirement Miss Grainger

PUPILS at a Nailsea primary were sad to say goodbye to one of their beloved teachers who retired last week after 21 years at the school.

Rosemary Grainger joined Golden Valley in September 1991, and has taught more than 600 children since then.

At a special assembly, Miss Grainger received a bouquet, a memories book with entries from all 409 children and some frog garden ornaments from the children.

And later, during a tea party, she was presented with a china ornament and a pair of binoculars from staff and governors.

Headteacher Kevin Lynch said: “Miss Grainger is looking forward to spending more time in her garden and maybe even a little bit of travelling.

“We wish her a long and happy retirement.”
