Friday hero

24th March 2000 at 00:00
Frances Cavanagh has been assistant caretaker at Our Lady's Catholic high school, Lancaster, for the past 11 years.

Always willing to help, she never complains about the sometimes unpleasant jobs caretakers have to do. "What makes her special is her unfailing good humour," says headteacher Michael Webster. When a new technology building opened at this 1,040-strong 11-18 school, an euipment supplier said: "I've been in lots of schools and I've never come across a more cheerful or obliging caretaker."
