A teaching assistant has helped out in her last lesson and thanked staff and children for an "amazing send off."
Denise Chaney has fulfilled numerous roles at Ormesby Village Infant School, where her own son was a pupil and she volunteered to help out just as it opened.
At a special assembly she was handed gifts, cards, and flowers, and treated to an afternoon tea.
She said: "I would like to thank the staff, children, parents and governors of Ormesby Village Infant School for the amazing send off given to me for my retirement.
"It was truly delightful.
"I know how much work, time, and effort went to making it so special.
"I have been so fortunate to have been involved in so many lives over the past 32 years.
