After serving students more than 355,000 lunches over 30 years, the East Manjimup Primary School canteen manager is retiring.

Lyn Bradley took up the manager position in 1987 when her children were attending the school.

At the time, Mrs Bradley thought she would only stay as long as her children but now, 30 years later, she is leaving with mixed feelings.

Mrs Bradley started at the school on July 22, 1987, and will finish on Friday.

“I do like the idea of being free to travel, but I will miss socialising with the staff and students at the school,” she said.

“I have to thank the P&C for my position, I am employed by them.”

Mrs Bradley said the nature of the school’s menu had changed over the years, from a limited selection of toasties, sausage rolls and pies to the expanded menu which also includes pizzas.
