ST Margaret of Scotland Primary School in Carbrain recently said a fond farewell to three long-serving staff members who retired on the last day of term before the summer holidays.
Language unit teacher Mary McOmish has retired after more than twenty years’ service, while Catherine Boyle has stood down after more than 40 years in the profession. Senior clerical assistant Liz Kilday was the third staff member to retire.
At a special assembly Mrs McOmish was presented flowers by Ethan Burke and Jamie-Leigh Dewar, both of Primary 2, while Catherine Boyle got her basket of flowers from Primary 4 pupils Wren Cullen and Daniel Alexander. Primary 7 pupils Aidan Souch and Nicole McMenemy were chosen to present Liz Kilday with her parting gift.
There was also a special buffet laid on at the school while the staff also organised a night out in Castlecary.
Principal teacher Deborah McBain said: “Staff, parents and pupils from St. Margaret of Scotland Primary School would like to thank Mrs McOmish, Mrs Boyle and Mrs Kilday for all their hard work and dedication over many years. We wish them all a very happy retirement!”
