Southery Academy school manager recognised for 30 years of service
A member of staff at a West Norfolk school has clocked up 30 years of service, and showed her continued goodwill at the school by assisting with a charity donation.
Lisa Good has been at Southery Academy on Westgate Street in the town for 30 years as school secretary.
She was on hand to help as a Christmas jumper day was held at the school to raise money for a charity cause.
The parents’ group at the school organised a Christmas jumper day with proceeds being donated to the children’s Rudham Ward at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Lynn as the nominated cause.
Mrs Good and Barney Rimmer, principal at the school,visited the ward on Thursday for a presentation along with schoolchildren.
Speaking about Mrs Good’s milestone of 30 years at the school, Mr Rimmer said: “The school and the community wanted to recognise the hard work she has given to not just the school, but the wider community as well.
“She was the school secretary but I called her the school manager because of how much she did for the school.
“Hopefully she stays on for 40 years because we greatly need her at the school.”
The Rudham Ward, which Southery Academy supported, is a 23-bed ward catering for children aged from 0 to 16.
There is a main ward area plus eight side rooms for very young babies or children suffering from infectious illnesses.
Southery Academy is part of the Downham Academy cluster and educates approximately 85 pupils aged 4-11.
The academy is part of the Eastern Multi-Academy Trust.
