Vale Bev Cust

Mrs Bev Cust, our Canteen Manageress, passed away on Saturday 10th July. Bev was a highly regarded member of our staff and over her time at the school had made a significant contribution to the health and well being of our students and the staff. Bev led our team of canteen workers and volunteers in a very positive manner, ensuring that the canteen staff provided the very best quality food and service possible. Bev was also widely respected as a major contributor to the development of school canteen programs in the many schools that sought her advice over the years.


Bev is survived by husband John and three children. Our deepest condolences go to all the members of Bevís family.
