A COLNE woman has retired after working as a nursery school teacher for nearly 40 years.
Mrs Susan Harrison has said goodbye to the children at Newtown Nursery School in Colne, where she has worked for the past 28 years, having previously worked at a school in Burnley for 10 years.
On her last day, she was presented with a necklace by the children, a bracelet and charms by nursery staff and cards and gifts from parents.
And that was not all - having joked she would be having a few “pyjama days” on retiring, she was invited back to school the next afternoon to find all the children in pyjamas and a pie and pea tea waiting.
She was also presented with a book of photographs taken during her time at the school, where she will remain as a governor when the new term starts.
“I will miss all the children, but not all the paperwork” she said. “I can remember teaching some of their parents as well and some of them still call me Mrs Harrison.”
