I am writing to advise you that I have been appointed to the position of Head of Junior School at George Watsons College in Edinburgh with effect from August 2012.
This has been a difficult decision for me and it is with a heavy heart that I will leave Longniddry. However, I am moving on safe in the knowledge that Longniddry Primary School is an excellent school, providing first class learning and teaching experiences and opportunities for all its pupils, provided by a highly dedicated and enthusiastic staff.
The position of Headteacher in Longniddry Primary School will be advertised in due course and a successor will be appointed once the formal interview process has been completed. I will keep you updated as necessary.
For me, it has been a pleasure and a privilege to have worked with you and your children over the past five years and I wish you all future success and happiness.
Primary 7 entertained members of the local community on Friday at their very own Burns Supper! The children organised the whole event. This included Scottish songs, poems, dancing and most importantly serving their guests with a serving of haggis, neeps and tatties with homemade shortbread and Irn Bru. It was a great success. Our local MSP, Ian Grey and MP Fiona O’Donnell were able to join us and couldn’t believe how well organised and confident the children were throughout the event!

Some Primary 7 pupils visited the Marie Curie Hospice today to sing their Burns songs and recite their poems. They entertained the many volunteers who help out at the hospice at their annual Burn’s Supper! The children did a super job! Marie Curie is a charity the school have supported for a long time and this was a nice opportunity to show the schools ongoing support. The children also got the chance to engage with the wider community.

Before the pupils left they were congratulated by the Lord and Lady Provost of Edinburgh!
