The canteen staff member was recently recognised for her contribution over the past two decades.
The Rockingham resident has watched her children and grandchildren attend East Waikiki and has been described by her fellow employees as a wonderful asset to the school.
P&C president Leslie Schryver said she was thankful for Ms Ryan’s dedication to her job.
‘She is a very important and caring person in our school community and she also helps teach children their manners and shopping skills,’ she said.
‘She has seen many faces come and go and I have always found Tania to be a very helpful and bubbly person.’
