AF­TER work­ing for 40 years in the same school – 25 as the head teacher – Dun­beg’s Sine MacVicar has been nom­i­nated for na­tional recog­ni­tion.

Dun­beg Pri­mary’s Ms MacVicar is in the run­ning for head teacher of the year at a na­tional awards cer­e­mony next month.

A spokesman for Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil said: ‘Sine has been widely praised for her 44 years of de­vo­tion to Dun­beg Pri­mary School, and the at­mos­phere of sup­port and en­cour­age­ment she has brought to the school and to the com­mu­nity.

‘Her per­son­al­ity and ten­dency to go above and beyond for pupils have al­lowed her to be­come a cher­ished mem­ber of the Ar­gyll com­mu­nity.

‘All of the fi­nal­ists will be in­vited to at­tend an awards cer­e­mony at the Hil­ton Ho­tel in Glas­gow on Wed­nes­day June 7, when judges will un­veil the win­ners of each award cat­e­gory.’

Be­fore that, this Satur­day (May 27), Dun­beg Pri­mary will be host­ing its an­nual fam­ily fun day.

The par­ent coun­cil and staff or­gan­ise this event to help raise funds for ex­tra ma­te­ri­als, re­sources and trips for the pupils.

The fun-filled day will be packed with great things, in­clud­ing a bouncy cas­tle, beat the goalie, wellie fling, splat the teacher, a raf­fle with amaz­ing prizes, bot­tle stall and, back-by-pop­u­lar-de­mand, a slip’n’slide (change of clothes/swim­suits ad­vis­able). There will also be teas, cof­fees and home­bak­ing, as well as Jackson’s burg­ers.

Ms MacVicar has made an im­mense im­pact on the com­mu­nity and chil­dren who have been taught by her. She will be much missed. Ex-pupils are wel­come to join in.

The event starts at 11am and the raf­fle will be drawn at 2pm. It will be fol­lowed by a con­cert by the chil­dren for Ms MacVicar.

Sine MacVicar will be much missed by pupils, par­ents and her col­leagues at Dun­beg Pri­mary School.
