Burn­side Pri­mary School are pre­par­ing to say goodbye to two of their most loved teach­ers.

El­iz­a­beth McLean has been with the school for 32 years and Jan­ice Ma­son for 21 years.

Both will be re­tir­ing at the Christ­mas hol­i­days, and the pair are well loved through­out the school and will be sorely missed by staff and teach­ers alike.

Mrs McLean has had a long teach­ing ca­reer, hav­ing taught else­where, she joined Burn­side Pri­mary’s staff in Au­gust 1982 .

Mrs Ma­son has taught for 21 years at Burn­side, start­ing at the school in Au­gust 1993.

Both Mrs Ma­son’s own sons at­tended the school and she even taught one of them at one point.

To show the teach­ers how much they will be missed, the pupils of Burn­side pre­sented both teach­ers with flow­ers last week at the school’s last assem­bly of 2014,.

Mrs Ma­son and Mrs McLean both say that they will re­ally miss the chil­dren and staff at Burn­side Pri­mary, who they have en­joyed work­ing with and teach­ing over the years.

They said that it had been re­ward­ing to spend so many years at the school, play­ing a part in the de­vel­op­ment of so many chil­dren.

Both are look­ing for­ward to be­ing able to travel out­with school hol­i­days and get­ting in­volved in new ac­tiv­i­ties.

Head teacher He­len McGar­vey said: “Both teach­ers will be greatly missed but we wish them both long and happy re­tire­ments.”
