A POPULAR teacher has retired after 21 years of working at a local school.
Kim Cherry was given a rousing send off by pupils and staff at Pashley Downs school and colleagues lined up to pay tribute to her.
A spokesman for the school said, “It is very hard to imagine Pashley without Miss Cherry – she has given so much to the school and she has been such a key member of the team.
“Her presentations to the new intake are legendary and she has a knack of seeing the best in every child.
“Each one is special to her, as she is to them.”
