Teacher re­tires on his birth­day

The Oban Times - - NEWS -

STAFF and pupils from St Columba's Pri­mary School near Fort Wil­liam said an emo­tional good­bye to a teacher re­tir­ing af­ter 16 years’ ser­vice.

Andy Stur­rock has worked with the school since it was called Lochy­side Pri­mary. He and his col­leagues made the tran­si­tion to the new Caol Cam­pus last year but he stepped down from his post on his birth­day, Fri­day May 12

A school spokesper­son said: ‘Mr Stur­rock has been a val­ued mem­ber of staff for al­most 16 years, spe­cial­is­ing in many sub­jects in­clud- ing sci­ence, tech­nol­ogy, art, com­put­ing and PE. Mr Stur­rock has had over­all re­spon­si­bil­ity for our school web­site and has al­ways been an ex­cel­lent sup­port to pupils and staff in many as­pects of school life.

‘ We thank Mr Stur­rock for his ex­cep­tional sup­port and com­mit­ment to the school over the years and wish him ev­ery hap­pi­ness in his re­tire­ment. He will be very much missed by us all. He was pre­sented with gifts and had a lovely farewell meal at Cor­rour Sta­tion with staff on Fri­day evening.’
