Barrow Primary School celebrate dinner lady Alma Wright’s 50th year working at school

 

 

Alma Wright, 82, was surprised with a cake, flowers and cards last Friday, as well as performances from each of the school’s five year groups, including a poem and a rendition of The Beatles’ Blackbird, which was released in 1968 – the same year Alma started work at the school.

“Age and time don’t bother me as long as you’re enjoying yourself,” she said.

“I’ve always wanted to work with children and it’s just worked out so well for me. It’s a lovely school and the children are great and we have lovely staff. Everyone has been very kind and nice.”
