We would like to thank all of our pupils, families and staff for their hard work, enthusiasm and endless support over the last four months! You have amazed us with your strength and resilience during a very challenging and difficult time.
Last night’s virtual prom was a wonderful way to say goodbye to our school leavers and we wish them all well for the amazing journeys that lie ahead of them.
We also have to say farewell to some staff members too as they leave us for pastures new.
We say a fond farewell to Niki Anderson, our Head of Early Learning and Childcare, who is retiring. Niki has been part of our community for many years both at Hazlewood and Orchard Brae. We will miss her very much but wish her every happiness in her retirement.
We also say goodbye to Sam Stephen, our dance and drama instructor, who is heading off for new adventures in London. Thank you Sam for your endless enthusiasm and boundless energy and for organising an amazing virtual prom! We wish you well for the future.
Cara Blackstock, PSA in Room 8 will be leaving us to train as a teacher and we wish her every success in her future career.
Tracey Catto, from the Admin team, left us at Easter but farewells then were overshadowed by events so we would like to wish her well in her future endeavours.
Goodbye also to Jacqui Clutten, who has been a children’s escort for 17 years and farewell to her fellow escort Connor Cadger.
But as we say farewell to what has been an unusual year to say the least, the staff at Orchard Brae would like to share a little something to brighten up your summer!
