PUPILS said farewell to their lunchtime supervisor who has retired after 28 years.

Mavis Dawson started work at Ripponden J&I school on the same day as her son started at the school.

She retired as senior midday supervisor.

A special whole school assembly was held in her honour where she was presented with flowers and a voucher for Lister Horsfall jewellers.

Teacher Diane Smith said: “She’ll be greatly missed.

“She is very dedicated.

“She put everything into her job and really interacted with both the school and the pupils.”
