Comhairle nan Eilean Siar would like to pay tribute to Katie Campbell for the hard work and dedication she has shown in 45 years working in Sgoil Dhalabroig’s canteen.

In that time Katie, who continues to work in the school canteen, has catered for generations of school children and served over 1.8 million meals for the children and staff who have passed through the school.

Head teacher Jane MacIntyre said, "All staff and pupils from Sgoil Dhalabroig would like say a huge heartfelt thank you to Katie Campbell who has for 45 years been a key part of our school.

"Everyone has fond memories of their favourite meal Katie serves, be it lentil soup, spaghetti Bolognese or crispy chicken and we cannot wait to get back in August to try them again!

"Sincere thanks Katie, from all at Sgoil Dhalabroig both past and present."

Sgoil Dhalabroig yesterday (Friday 26 June) held a presentation for Katie in recognition of her years of service.
