Here comes the summer...
And so we come to the final days of the 2011/12 term.
It has been another successful year full of hard work, academic attainment, wider achievement, trips and fun. Our pupils and staff have been involved in a wide range of activities. However, whatever they do, the thing that always shines through is the ethos and community spirit of the school as a whole. Hopefully the website and the attached newsletter will give a flavour of the wide variety of activities that we have been involved in.
As we go off to enjoy the long, halcyon days of the summer we also bid farewell to some member s of our community. Our S6 and some of our S5 have moved on to employment or Further and Higher Education. Miss Smith (Art), leaves us to join Kilmarnock Academy and Mrs Gillespie (Computing) will take up the position of PT Computing at Prestwick Academy. Mr Tweddle(History) also leaves us to join Fernhill School. We also bid a fond farewell to Miss Nelson (PE), Ruth Milne, Donna Thomson, Susan Haldane and Marianne Hamilton (PSA’s)
A special goodbye goes to Mrs Jane Strathearn (music) who also retires this summer after over 20 years of dedication in Queen Margaret and to Mrs Moira Gray, our Head Teacher, who leaves after 5 years with us 37 years in Education. Time for a well earned rest!
We wish them all “All the Best” in their future, wherever their paths may lead them!
Queen Margaret Academy looks forward to welcoming some new faces in August and in particular our new S1.
