Dear Parents and Carers
I am delighted to inform you that following interview, Mrs Helen Gardyne is the preferred candidate for the permanent post of Head Teacher of Haddington Primary School.
Mrs Gardyne is currently Head Teacher of Ormiston Primary School in East Lothian. She is a very experienced school leader, and is delighted to have been appointed to the post of Head Teacher at Haddington.
Due to the late stage in the school session to be able to appoint a new Head Teacher to replace Mrs Gardyne at Ormiston, she will not be able to start in post until October, therefore I will appoint an Acting Head Teacher for Haddington until then. I will give you further details of this before the end of term next week.
I know you will all make Mrs Gardyne very welcome when she starts in post.
Nicola McDowell, Head of Education
