Milton Primary School staffing update for 2020/21
Head teacher update.
As you may have been aware, my secondment has now come to an end and I will now return to my previous post. It has been a privilege to have led the school through such a difficult time. I thank all parents/carers, pupils and staff for all of your support and team efforts over the past few months. I have been so proud of the efforts that families have gone to, to keep their children’s education continuing over this time. Thank you.
As Mrs Sinclair will remain in her seconded post until October, a new acting head teacher was appointed today. I am delighted to let you know that Mrs Gemma Dunnett will take on the Acting HT role until October 1st.
Mrs Dunnett will be in touch with you in due course. I’m sure you will all join me in wishing Mrs Dunnett lots of luck and enjoyment in her new role.
Retirement of Miss O’Brien
Sadly, Miss O’Brien is retiring from Milton P.S. and will not return in August. We know that all of the children will miss Miss O’Brien greatly. She always went the extra mile to support the children in her care and they were all so fond of her. All of the staff would like to wish Miss O’Brien a very happy retirement and hope that she visits soon to let us say a proper goodbye.
Mrs Sutherland and Mrs MacDonald have written a message to show how much Mrs O’Brien is thought of here at Milton P.S.
“We are sorry to be losing Miss Carol O’Brien from Milton Primary. Miss O’Brien has been a Pupil Support Assisstant for over 20 years and we are so lucky to have had her with us at Milton for the last 4 years. Miss O’Brien is a very valuable, popular and respected PSA and we are all going to miss her. We would like to wish Carol all the best in her new venture and she will always get a warm welcome at Milton Primary School.
Lots of love and thanks from the staff and pupils at Milton Primary School.”
As you know, Ms O’Shea is now on maternity leave. We are all eagerly awaiting some happy news in the near future. Good luck Ms O’Shea from all of us.
I am pleased to inform you that Miss Crew secured the post to cover Ms O’Shea’s maternity leave this session. Miss Crew will teach P5/6/7. We are all very happy to have Miss Crew back as part of the team and she is looking forward to seeing her new class in August.
Mrs Candido Barton
Mrs Candido Barton has now completed her probation year with us and we wish her lots of luck in her future career. She has been an asset to the school this session and went above and beyond during school closure to look after and educate P4/5. We will miss you Mrs Candido Barton. Don’t be a stranger.
Mrs McGaskill and Mr Jansen
Both Mrs McGaskill and Mr Jansen have moved on to new challenges. We will miss them and wish them both the best of luck in the future.
