Wednesday 28th February was a sad day at SS Peter and Paul Catholic Primary Academy – Mrs Dawn McTurk, who had been our crossing lady for 16 years, retired.
Dawn has been such a valuable member of our school community helping the children to safely cross the road while also being the first welcoming face in the mornings to our pupils. Dawn has gone above and beyond her post by also helping the school in our Breakfast Club, helping set our club up and also playing with the children in the mornings.
We had a special assembly on Wednesday afternoon, where we presented Dawn with a card and gift off the staff. We also presented her with an award off everyone involved with the school for her ‘Outstanding contribution to the Community’.
Dawn is now going to become a lunchtime supervisor at a school local to her home. We wish her all the best – our schools loss is definitely their gain.
