Rougham School celebrate the opening of their new hall and kitchen and thank Sheila Cocksedge for being their cook for 25 years

Sheila Cocksedge is celebrating 25 years as school cook at Rougham Primary School, with pupils yesterday presenting her with flowers and a song thanking her for her years of service. The recognition of Ms Cocksedge’s fine food came on the same day the school’s new hall and kitchen were first put to practical use.

The old facilities were not adequate to cater for the expanding school’s needs as it takes students until Year Six for the first time.

As such, the old school hall and kitchen were converted into classrooms, while Ms Cocksedge and her team had been cooking their meals at Beyton Middle School and bringing them back to Rougham.

Headteacher Karen Sewell said: “We’re really happy to be celebrating 25 years of Sheila working here. I couldn’t begin to calculate the number of children she’s served meals to over the years, and I’m sure they’d all say she’s famed for her chocolate pudding.

“Beyton have been fantastic through all of this but it’s nice to be back to normal.”
