On 7 June I notified parents groups that Mrs Goudy had resigned her Yr6 job-share post.
At the same time I shared that Mr Skimin, who had been covering the Yr6 class, had been appointed VP at Comber PS.
Subsequently, the governors have moved quickly to appoint a new Yr6 teacher.
Mr Chris Brady was appointed on Thursday evening and, all things being equal, will take up his new post at Moneyrea at the start of next term, or shortly thereafter.
We are extremely sorry to be losing Mrs Goudy, who has been a great friend to our school family over the last seven years.
Rachel is a talented teacher and has put her expertise in Art and ICT to good use supporting her colleagues and developing our children’s skills.
Rachel was always willing to lend a hand, wherever help was required. She was also ready, willing and able to throw her hat in the ring at PTA events and was a valued member of staff on our annual Yr7 residential to Loch Insh.
We all, governors, staff, parents and pupils wish Mrs Goudy every blessing in her future pathways, in full confidence that her many talents and big personality will open many new avenues for her to pursue.
We are pleased that Mrs Goudy will be teaching in Year 6 for the next three days which will give us a chance to say goodbye in person.
