A long-serving midday supervisor has rang the dinner bell at a Lowestoft-area primary school for the final time.
After an "astonishing" 30 years of service, Lynne Hart hung up her apron and whistle after retiring at the end of the academic year at Phoenix St. Peter Academy in Lowestoft.
The school, on Enstone Road, Lowestoft, held a "wonderful celebration" as afternoon tea was enjoyed to mark the long service and retirement of Mrs Hart.
A school spokesman said: "Having completed 30 years of service, Lynne has supported an astonishing 5,000 children over the years and seen whole generations of families attending the school."
Sarah Harvey, a friend and colleague, said: "We are very proud of Lynne.
