Children send off retired teacher in special service

CHILDREN sang songs for their retired Shipham First School teacher at a special service held to honour her last week.

Mrs Bibba Kenny worked at the school for almost 15 years.

A service was held at a church in Shipham where year 4 children performed a rap for her and everyone sang a specially-written song to honour her.

Many pupils, parents and staff attended the service.

Mrs Kenny was then presented with a set of pottery plates and bowls made for her by local potter and music teacher Susie Spanring.

“We all wish her well in her retirement.”
