Angela Garrett, long serving administrator at Tregoze Primary School, was given a warm send off at a surprise end of term party in July.
She was the last remaining member of staff who joined the school in April 1991 before it opened in September that year.
“The end of term assembly was rather tearful,” said Angela. “The decision to retire now was made easier for me as Tregoze is now part of a federation of six primaries and the administrator role was changed.”
To spice up her departure, Angela was taken by staff to see the Dream Boys at the DeVere Village. She plans to travel the world with her husband and spend time with her three grandchildren at her home in Wootton Bassett.
• Tregoze has become part of the White Horse Federation which involves Moredon, Rodbourne Cheney, Drove and Mountford Manor Primary Schools, and Nylands Special School. A single governing body has been formed to oversee the federation which has been awarded teaching school status, one of a hundred in the country to receive this.
