A TEACHING assistant has said goodbye to her pupils after 25 years at Crosshall Junior School, saying her time at the school had been a "never-ending story".

Yvonne Robson, 60, retired at the end of the Christmas term and said she would never forget the family atmosphere the school offered. Mrs Robson has taught many children from different year groups.

She said: "I shall always treasure many, many happy memories of people, places and events that have taken place over the years. The humourous quotes and comments from the children and the marvellous friendship and support from the many adults I have worked with."

When asked about her most memorable moments at the school, she said there were simply too many to recount but one that stuck in her mind was a school trip to Penlan, in Wales, where the pupils went camping and made her proud by being co-operative and on their best behaviour.

Mrs Robson was presented with gifts, including an album of pictures and drawings to remind her of her years at the school.
