How long have you worked at Truro High School for Girls?
I have worked at the school for 15 years.

What are your main duties?
I start at 8.15am each day when the boarders arrive for breakfast.

I help clear away after that and then start preparing for lunchtime, setting up the counters, putting out the plates and utensils.

I mainly do salads: everything is fresh in and made on site.

What's the biggest change you've seen?
We now have a lot more space to display everything invitingly; before it was a much more cramped space.

The girls have a lot more variety to choose from than they did before, and it’s going down very well.

Do you have a close-knit team at Truro High School for Girls?
It’s a really good group and it’s all about teamwork, especially since Neil (catering manager, Neil Stephenson) joined us in 2015.

(Lisa in the middle) I’ve also done some charity ‘runs for life’, my favourite being the Rainbow Run when the runners are coated in dry paint (hence Rainbow) and we raise money for Hospice South West.We have always had summer lets but now we have Christmas and Easter too. We share the shifts amongst us.

Tell us about your life outside of work
I’ve got two daughters aged 20 and 24.

I try to keep fit and healthy and do Zumba twice a week.

Any other interesting hobbies or stories?
I love coastal walking. We have got lots of places to go. Sometimes we take off in the camper van and do a couple of walks slightly further away.

I’m a big fan of Poldark and I was lucky enough to see them filming it. We went for a walk at Crantock Beach and there they were! They let us stay and watch but we had to keep quiet.
