A day of long goodbyes
THERE were more goodbyes than usual at the Lochyside end of year assembly with teachers and students saying farewell to each other and the school.
Carol Tait, who has been teaching for four decades including eight years at Lochyside, alongwith Coreen Cant, who has spent 31 years in pupil support at the school, both celebrated their final day of service. They were praised for their work by Headteacher Violet Smith and in return they both thanked Miss Smith for her fantastic support throughout their time at the school.
This was also the final day for all students at the Lochyside location who are looking forward to resuming as St Columba school after the holidays at the new Caol Campus.

And the Lochyside Primary 7 leavers with their awards, at the last assembly in the current building.
