Class act as pupils and staff keep teacher scoot­ing along

The Oban Times - - Community News -

KIN­LOCHLEVEN high school pupils were sur­prised to hear the usual sound of heels click­ing re­placed with a mo­bil­ity scooter when their head­teacher, Re­becca Machin, broke her leg dur­ing the sum­mer hol­i­days.

Dubbed the ‘Machin Mo­bile’ by stu­dents, the scooter was sub­ject to a makeover dur­ing its time at the school, adorned with fairy lights, a flag and horn.

Although dis­ap­pointed the scooter is gone, the pupils sur­prised Ms Machin with a cake when she re­turned to school af­ter hav­ing her cast re­moved last week.

She said: ‘I thought it was very kind of Mary Mac­Don­ald and Beth Grant, who work in the of­fice, to get me the mo­bil­ity scooter. I would never have done this my­self as I am far too stub­born. How­ever, it has been to­tally bril­liant and has made these last few weeks so much eas­ier.

‘New bits kept be­ing added but that al­ways demon­strated the kind­ness and thought­ful­ness I have come to ex­pect of my pupils at Kin­lochleven high school. The cake was a lovely sur­prise and was wait­ing for me in my of­fice when I got back from hav­ing my cast taken off. I cut it at lunch time so that I could share it with all of my pupils and staff.’
