A MUCH-LOVED school librarian has said goodbye to pupils she loaned thousands of books to and taught to read over 12 years.
June Bulley, 70 , from Hayling Island, retired from Sharps Copse Primary School, in Leigh Park, with a special cream tea held in her honour.
The schoolchildren made party food as well as decorating the hall with bunting and banners for the goodbye celebration.
Ms Bulley said, ‘I spent five years helping the children read on a one-to-one basis and then seven years running the library, so I got to know all the children well.’
Her send-off began with cream tea in the library and an assembly. Every child designed a banner for the librarian around their favourite books.
Teacher Amy Fairall said of Ms Bulley: ‘She is valued a lot at the school and she is such a lovely lady.’
Miss Bulley is moving to Mengham Junior School, Hayling.
