A very rare thing that happened today... Rose our cook was speechless!
The whole school gathered in the hall, along with members of Rose's family to surprise her and to say thank you for all the dinners she has cooked for the children of Birmingham and especially here at St Thomas More, where she has been for almost 30 years.
When Rose was ask to come to the hall, she was visibly surprised and speechless to see us all. We gave her flowers, a congratulations balloon, a certificate and a very special book that each class written a page of, each saying what their favourite lunch was or pudding, about Rose always being happy and singing.
The school choir sang a song they had written with Sister Susan just for Rose, this brought a tear to her eye. Rose and her family then had refreshments and told us many stories about Rose and her cooking.
Congratulations, Rose, and thank you.
