Thursday 23rd February
I am writing to inform you that Miss Kirsty Sandilands will be leaving Sanderson’s Wynd to take up a permanent Principal Teacher post at Cockenzie Primary School.
Permanent Principal Teacher jobs do not come up very often, so while I am devastated to be losing Miss Sandilands, I absolutely understand her reason for moving on. Miss Sandilands has done an excellent job, on two occasions, of being Acting Principal Teacher covering Mrs Heather Martin’s Maternity Leaves and absolutely deserves this full time permanent post.
I know you will join me in congratulating Miss Sandilands but will also do so with heavy hearts. Miss Sandilands has taught a lot of her current class over several years and has built up strong, trusting relationships with both the class, and you, as parents and carers.
On a brighter note, I am delighted to inform you, that to ensure consistency for the class, Miss Hannah Enzerink, who currently teaches the class on a Thursday and Friday, will take over full teaching responsibility when Miss Sandilands departs.
Miss Sandilands’ last working day will be on Friday 17th March and will take up her new post on Monday 20th March.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Miss Sandilands for her enthusiasm, dedication and commitment to the school. She will most definitely be missed by all!
Should you have any questions please contact either Mrs Burton (DHT for P5-P7) or I to discuss further.
