Farewell Mrs Hind
Today, we said farewell to Mrs Anna Hind who, on Monday, will take up a twenty-three month secondment as an Acting Principal Teacher at another primary school in Edinburgh. Mrs Hind, who has acted up twice as Leith Primary’s Principal Teacher, left with a handmade card signed by many former pupils who wished her good luck. Mrs Hind has contributed a huge amount to the success and development of Leith Primary School, not least with her support of pupil filmmaking, winning with her P7 class at the final of the School Mock Court trials and the attainment of three Eco Schools Award Green Flags. I would like to thank Mrs Hind for her enormous contribution to the school so far and wish her the very best for her secondment.
Welcome to Leith Primary Steph!
We are thrilled to welcome Stephanie Mason as the new Crossing Patrol Guide at Duncan Place. We have been concerned for some time by the absence of Crossing Patrol Guides on the busy roads around the school since Robert, Wilma and Margaret retired last year. However Steph, who is also the mum of Grace in P5, felt that doing this important job would be a great chance for her to return to work. We have been informed that another new Crossing Patrol Guide will start next week at Academy Street. I know that our staff, pupils and parents will give them both a warm Leith welcome.
