A long-serving Windsor headteacher celebrated her final school trip before retiring by enjoying a free day out at Legoland.
Dr Rosslyn Sendorek, who has been in charge at Oakfield First School for almost 22 years, was welcomed to the theme park in Winkfield Row along with all of her 285 pupils and staff on Wednesday.
When Dr Sendorek first joined the school in Imperial Road, her pupils helped to design artwork for the ‘My Town’ area, which Legoland has recently transformed into Heartlake City.
Oakfield’s young artists got another chance to contribute to the theme park this year when they designed pictures to decorate the Hill Train attraction before the park re-opened for the 2015 season.
Ingrid Fernandes, development director of the Legoland Windsor resort, said: “We are delighted the Oakfield First School students were able to have a free day out with us to celebrate such a fantastic achievement by Dr Rosslyn Sendorek.”
Dr Sendorek added: “After 42 years of school trips, it was a lovely day to conclude.
“A lot of the children have got passes so it was nice because they were showing the teachers what they enjoy.
“I started with Legoland when we were deciding whether we would back part of the Legoland design project and I’ve finished at Legoland. It was quite fitting.”
