A special service was held at St Michael’s Parish Church with special songs and a film presentation, as she left to go on secondment at Low Port Primary before she retires at Christmas.

Acting headteacher Rosalind Veneroni said: “She will be sadly missed by the staff and pupils. We wish her the best for her retirement when she plans to go on a cruise, spend time with her grandchildren and fundraise for Children’s Liver Disease Foundation.”

Pupils were also waving an emotional goodbye at St Joseph’s Primary as headteacher Margaret Johns moved on after five years, to St John Ogilvie in Livingston.

Acting headteacher Lisa Moore said: “Margaret made a huge contribution to the school community, and we will all miss her very much. But we wish her all the best in her new post.”

Pupils said goodbye with a slideshow of memories and presented her with gifts.
