A fond farewell for Dorothy
Dorothy Simpson, head teacher at Longside School, retired at the end of term after 16 years at the school.
To mark the occasion of her retirement, parents and pupils presented her with a clock and vouchers at their Parent Council Beetle Drive.
During her 31 years in the teaching profession, Mrs Simpson has taught at Buchanhaven, Kininmonth and latterly at Longside School as headteacher.
Her career at Longside has seen her work in both the old and new school, with many rain-soaked days spent walking between buildings prior to the new building being completed in 2005.
Mrs Simpson now looks forward to her early retirement playing golf and holidaying in Spain with her husband Sandy and visiting their children, Scott and Julie, who both currently work in Australia.
