The Arran Banner - - Front Page -

Pupil sup­port teacher Mrs Les­ley McHale is sur­rounded by Whit­ing Bay Pri­mary pupils who pre­sented her with flow­ers and a card on her re­tire­ment af­ter more than 40 years in the pro­fes­sion.

Staff and pupils pre­sented Mrs Les­ley McHale with flow­ers, cards and best wishes on her re­tire­ment af­ter more than 15 years at Whit­ing Bay Pri­mary school.

Pupil sup­port teacher Mrs McHale, who has been teach­ing on Ar­ran for more than 40 years – pre­vi­ously as a maths teacher at Ar­ran High School – re­ceived the emo­tional good­bye from the chil­dren who were as­sured that she would re­turn to visit when help­ing with projects and gar­den­ing.

Mrs McHale is look­ing for­ward to her re­tire­ment but will miss the pupils. She aims to spend time with her grand­chil­dren and work­ing in her gar­den.

She is also look­ing for­ward be­ing able to take walks on Ar­ran and do some of the things that she did not have time for pre­vi­ously.

Fac­ulty mem­bers, who will also host a quiet get to­gether with Mrs McHale, said she will be sorely missed by pupils and teach­ers alike.


Whit­ing Bay Pri­mary pupils present Mrs Les­ley McHale with flow­ers and a card which they have all signed for her re­tire­ment.
